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.
