Big news for coffee nerds, as it looks like La Colombe is taking over a spacious new river-adjacent location in none other than white hot Frogtown, with plans for a full-on roastery and coffee shop.
The East Coast company has been hoping to make big inroads into the already stuffed Los Angeles coffee market, with a locked-in first standalone coffee shop location already slated for the former Casbah Cafe in Silver Lake, right on Sunset Boulevard. This big new roastery in Frogtown should put an even larger footprint down, with plans to sell beans on site, do wholesale for other shops in town, and offer bikers and Frogtown locals a place along the river to enjoy themselves.
The new project hits in a big mixed-use development along Newell Street, and includes some 3,500 square feet of ground floor space, as well as an 800 square foot mezzanine. The rest of the Frogtown project is still coming together as well, with options for retail and office space across a variety of different spaces. If all goes well, La Colombe Frogtown should be up and running by spring.
The arrival of La Colombe in such a big way is par for the course these days, as other large out of town companies like Tartine, with their all-encompassing Manufactory concept, also make plans to go big in the City of Angels.
