Lola Coffeebar debuts next week
As if Daniel Wayne doesn't work hard enough cooking up a storm in the kitchen of his restaurant, Lola Tapas, now he says he's going to be working the espresso machine there every morning, too.
Tentatively starting Monday, December 17, Lola Tapas will be open as Lola Coffeebar from 7 a.m. to noon, Monday through Saturday.
No doubt the place will have an instant following, thanks to Wayne's reputation as an uber-talented barista (he's the former owner of Lux Coffeebar, the hipster hangout next to Pane Bianco). Fresh-baked tarts and cakes from Lola's in-house pastry chef will be another draw, and wi-fi will be an added bonus. And now that he just got a permit from the city, Wayne says he'll be opening an outdoor patio as well -- most likely, as soon as the skies clear up.
