Photos: Plaza Café Lounge now open
Plaza Café Coffee Lounge opened April 2 after numerous construction delays.
The coffee bar at Seventh and K streets fronts St. Rose of Lima Park, and co-owner Omar Tarin said Friday that it is already attracting regulars.
“We have a modern lounge feel, and we have two TVs playing news at all times, and people are already telling us how good our paninis are,” Tarin said.
Cups of coffee, with beans supplied by Vaneli’s, run $1.50, and panini sandwiches average about $7. A range of desserts, fresh fruits, salads and smoothies is also available. Free wireless Internet access is provided as well as many electrical outlets.
The 1,600-square-foot interior seats about 45, and an 800-square-foot patio able to seat another 45 is in the works.
Currently, the coffee bar is open from 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m., and Tarin said he hopes to push the opening time back to 7 a.m. in the next few weeks.
