8 Weeks in!

Hello coffee lovers,

Summer is here (or should it be the Fall?!) and we have hot and cold drinks to keep up with these crazy weather patterns! It is hard to believe that we are now eight weeks open and what a whirlwind it has been.  The level of support from the neighborhood has been truly overwhelming.  Westparkers stay true to their word and actively support local businesses so we want to thank you.

With any new venture there are always kinks to iron out and we always look for feedback.  Since we started this project in August of last year we have surveyed our followers for feedback about everything from menu options to opening and closing hours.  Now that we are a few weeks into this we have created a new survey to see if we are meeting the goals that we set when we opened.  You can take the survey here

Onto some exciting updates:

  • We will open our take out window tomorrow! It is located on the W 159th of the building and you can pull in curbside and grab a drink and/or baked good to go.  As always we ask that you don’t block any of our neighbors driveways.
  • We will launch our daily soup schedule also tomorrow as the weather is meant to return to more fall like conditions! Soup will be served from11am each day! 
  • We have some exciting events coming up with a pumpkin painting with our Barista Mimi and also some live music from Irishman Andrew McManus.
  • We have pumpkin spice lattes for the fall with apple cider drinks coming!
  • We have t-shirts, hoodies and mugs for sale!

Remember the take our survey

Slainte!
Team 5 Points.

Thank you West Park !

Keep Calm - The coffee is starting to brew

Hello Coffee Lovers,
 
A few important updates:
 
July 4th Parade
A little birdie told us that it gets a bit busy around the 5 Points during the parade! We’re looking forward to the opportunity to meet more of our neighbors. We have a surprise or two in store for all parade goers, so swing by to see what we have up our sleeves!

Build-out
Our building is starting to look a lot like a cafe! So far we have painted the walls and ceilings, polished the concrete floors, added electrical fixtures, added subway tile and the list goes on. We now focus on awnings, cabinets, patio fencing as we gallop towards the finish line.

Menu
We’re keeping our promise to provide menu items based on our recent survey responses and our commitment to source locally. We’re excited to announce Storehouse Tea as our tea vendor. Storehouse Tea is a fantastic local company focused on sourcing and blending certified organic and Fair Trade teas.

Slainte!

Conor, Bridget, Lisa and Nora.

Keep Calm -- the Coffee is almost on

Light at the end of the tunnel...

Hello Coffee Lovers,
 
We hope that you are all getting a chance to enjoy the nice weather as we head into summer!
 
Lots to report from 5 Points Coffee & Tea. Over the past few months, we’ve been logging long hours to make sure we stay on schedule for a summer opening. We continue to aim for a mid to late summer opening with a special event planned for the July 4th parade. We have a number of surprises up our sleeves for the 4th event, so stay tuned!  
 
A few important updates:
 
Hooley:
The 5 Points table at the Hooley on May 13th was a huge success! Thank you to all of you who stopped by to say hi and participate in our Cleveland spin board trivia game.  We loved getting the chance to meet and chat with so many of you! And a special shout-out to Pam Keown who won our Hooley Grand Prize. Enjoy Pam!

Build-out:
Lots and lots of progress over the last month and a half. To date, we have added a new roof, new concrete, interior framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, tuckpointing and much more. The next few weeks will showcase our custom awnings with our logo, new doors, patio fence and more! We are proud to work with Scalish Construction and the Storefront Renovation Program (SRP) on this project. 

Menu:
We are close to finalizing our menu based on your fantastic survey responses. We’re thrilled that we have found great local partners to provide our coffee, tea and tasty treats!  We are excited to be working with Phoenix to bring you some excellent coffee drinks. Stay tuned for more menu news on our next newsletter! 

Slainte and GO CAVS!

Conor, Bridget, Lisa and Nora.

5 Points Coffee & Tea Fall Update

HELLO COFFEE LOVERS, 

Thanks to everyone who took the time to take our survey -- close to 200 in total! Your opinions and ideas provided our team with invaluable community insight. We hope your collective wisdom and support helps make us a West Park staple.

The goal of this newsletter is to bring you to up to speed on our build out progress. Earlier this week, we finished the demo work on the inside and now are ready to sign off on the final architectural drawings! We spent many hours, as I’m sure you can imagine, working on the interior layout and taking advice from a number of experts. We hope we’ve landed on the perfect design so we can ensure a great customer experience.

We plan on sending out regular updates so that you’re aware of our progress. Thanks for joining us on this exciting (and sometimes scary!) ride. Stay tuned ...

Slainte!

Conor, Bridget, Lisa and Nora.
