Zeke's Coffee opens cafe
Zeke's coffee, the Lauraville coffee roaster, has branched out into the cafe business.
Zeke's opened its cafe Friday at 4607 Harford Road, just 0.2 miles north of its production facility on Montebello Terrace. Zeke's continues to roast its coffee at the old spot but you have to got to the new location now to buy beans to go.
The 20-seat cafe is in a 1920s-era building that once served as a tin-ceiling showroom, so the ceiling and walls are completely covered with the stuff, said Todd Brizzi of Zeke's. (I'd asked him his job title and he said "worker bee."
The cafe has been casting about for a celebrity endorser. A few suggestions posted on Zeke's Facebook site: John Waters, Duff Goldman and Sheila Dixon.
