The onion-and-blue-cheese scones at Café Passé are some of the finest breakfast offerings available downtown, and it looks like we'll have a larger space to enjoy them in starting next week.
Café Passé, which is located at 415 N. Fourth Ave., is expanding into the former Cali Kind Clothing Company at 417 N. Fourth Ave., says Tabatha Christian, a café employee. The expansion will double the number of seats at the café.
Christian said the amount of outdoor seating will also increase thanks to a large area in back of the eatery. The area will be connected to the current patio area, which boasts live plants and a number of tables.
Several new gallery/retail spaces will also be opening at the location. Tana Kelch from Bohemia is opening a space there, as is local artist Duncan Linthicum. Christian is opening a shop that will sell locally made fashions, jewlery and home décor.
A stage in the new space will also allow the café to feature live music, and movie nights are planned for the outdoor area.
The menu will stay the same, except for the addition of five new omelets, said Christian.
A grand opening from 6 to 10 p.m., Thursday, April 22, will feature live music by the Tryst, Duo Sonido, the Awkward Moments and the Fell City Shouts. Call 624-4411 for more information.
