Right after the Hotel Indigo added a very fine restaurant and bar at its Cathedral Hill location, catty corner from the Pratt Library on Franklin Street, 520 Park Avenue two blocks to the west, opened a very well designed coffee shop. And their next opening, the "Mount Vernon Marketplace" is right around the corner!
The Ceremony Coffee Roasters hail from Annapolis where they operate a coffee shop and coffee roasting place. Operations here started this week. The very clean interiors are bright and designed around share tables. A special enclosed room is designed for workshops and "cafe training" sessions.
This opening marks another frontier in the never ending coffee shop craze. Thanks to the soon to be opening market, the already operating Trinacria Cafe across the street and the planned cafe at Franklin and Eutaw, this long neglected area is no longer a coffee or gourmet desert.
