Park Plaza has coffee once again

The coffee is on again at the Red Deer Park Plaza office building. The Coffee Shop started pouring at the 5214 47th Ave. building last Wednesday, filling the void left by the recent closure of Grounded Coffee & Cafe.

The Coffee Shop started pouring at the 5214 47th Ave. building last Wednesday, filling the void left by the recent closure of Grounded Coffee & Cafe.

Karen Pajak, who owns the new business with Trish Bogart, said The Coffee Shop hopes to entice customers with more than just hot and cold beverages. It offers a range of food that includes homemade soups, sandwiches, panninis and pies, as well as feature items like quiche.

“We have a breakfast plate and a breakfast sandwich,” Pajak added, stressing that everything is made on-site.

“We make our own pastries, we make our own buns, we cook the meat — we don’t buy anything premade.”

She estimates that The Coffee Shop has space for about 100 customers, and said a couple initiatives are in the works to make it a gathering place for seniors and others. These include a possible games area, where patrons could play cards, and a reading area with books available for use.

Grounded Coffee & Cafe, which opened a year ago, had been operated by McMan Youth, Family & Community Services Association as a source of funding for its programs.
