What's cooking, May 15

The converted stock room, plus some seating in the store proper, accommodates some 25 to 30, according to owner Scott Harris. Beginning Monday, May 18, he'll open at 7 a.m. — instead of 10 a.m. — Monday through Saturday Later in the summer her plans to extend his evening hours, from 6 p.m., to 7 or 8 p.m. His menu, he says, is “Starbucks-esque,” with coffee, latte, mocha, 120 varieties of tea and chocolate truffles and the like. If the lounge catches on, Harris says he may add a kitchen and start serving food.
