Now open in the old Milano’s
location at the corner of Kline and Chebucto is Chebucto Coffee
(6430 Chebucto Road, 404-5885) a warmly appointed coffee shop started by Mike McInnis
. “The area needed a coffee shop,” says Katrina
, an employee with whom Shoptalk spoke. She mentions that McInnis is big on fresh squeezed lemonade, baked goods from Deli Green
on Hollis Street, and good coffee. “Simple coffee for simple people,” asserts Brendan
, another employee who described his job title as “coffee deliverer.” Local fine artists and photographers should inquire in the shop about displaying their work on the walls, and customers should expect an expanded menu in the fall, including paninis and soups, “breakfast and lunch stuff,” says Brendan. The shop will extend to the second floor of the building in the future, but the patio on Chebucto is open now. The hours are 7am-7pm, 7 days a week.
