Earlier this year we raved about the beautiful new spot that opened up inside Sam Fox's The Yard. Lola Coffee, a second location of the well-loved downtown coffee shop owned by Daniel Wayne, brought fancy coffee offerings, Spanish tapas, and a sleek design to the table.
But after about six months, the restaurant/coffee shop/wine bar is preparing for big changes. As of Sunday, August 24 Lola Coffee at The Yard will close. It will relaunch later this fall as "a newer, fresher concept," according to the Lola at The Yard website.
The website goes on to say that they expect to be re-launch "sometime next month."
In preparation for the closure, Lola at The Yard will be hosting a send off party with food and drink specials. The restaurant hopes to clear out both the bar and the kitchen, so specific deals will depend on what's still in stock by Sunday.
Some definitive deals will include:
- $3 Craft Beers
- $4 Sangria (Red or White)
- $5 Select Wines
There will also be a selection of bruschetta available for $5.
They include BLT Toast with housemade porkbelly, tomato marmalade, and frisee lettuce; Serrano Ham with kale pesto and burrata cheese; Wild Mushroom Toast with sherry glazed mushrooms, manchego cheese, and thyme; and Tomato Basil Bruschetta with diced roma tomatoes, basil, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil.
Lola at The Yard roasts their own coffee on-site and offers several unique coffee brewing methods including Oji cold drip coffee machines and the Valley's first siphon bar. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- with a dinner menu of Spanish tapas inspired by the now defunct Lola Tapas.
