New Coffee Shop Coming to Foster Road

Have you noticed the work being done on the former Blake’s Decorette building at 5338 SE Foster Rd (map)?

We communicated with the owner of the building, Jonathan Hooker, to get the scoop.

Yes, there is a coffee shop going in. I don’t want to talk too many details about the shop just yet as things are still getting completely ironed out but we’ve been working on it since last summer and coffee shop is on our permit, set so it’s 100% happening.

Other than the coffee shop, which will be in the downstairs corner, we’ll be utilizing the rest of the building as the office for my business, Oblio.
