Have you seen all the construction on the north side of Patterson between 25 1/2 Road and 1st Street? Who's moving in?

You'll be pleased to know an established local business serving that wonderful life-giving brain juice we call coffee will be moving in.

Who is it?

For years now you've been able to visit Coffee Trader on the corner of 7th and Patterson, right across from St. Mary's. Now, they have a new location going up at 2566 Patterson.

What's it like?

I think you'll agree when I say the new building looks fantastic. There appears to be plenty of square footage. It appears as though a patio will be offered as well.

Curiosity got the better of me, so I wander around the back of the building. Unbeknownst to me at the time, my snooping led me into a "Restricted Area." Sorry about that. While trespassing, I caught a glimpse of what appears to be the future site of an excellent drive-thru window.

Welcome to the neighborhood.

My early academic career included a number of fun-filled years at Pomona Elementary, located directly across the street. Back in those days, the north side of Patterson pretty much consisted of two things:

  • houses
  • dirt

We had dirt, lots of it. Look what's happening now. One can almost feel sorry for the people living in the apartment complex just north of this new construction. If I had an awesome coffee shop such as this located right next to my house, I'd never get anything done. For that matter, my bank account would be empty.

I contacted the owners for information regarding their opening date. As soon as that information is available, you'll be the first to know.
