Coffee Shop Pre-Preview in Downtown Walnut Creek

1321 Locust St, Walnut Creek

Coffee Shop, the eagerly anticipated new coffee shop that replaces Lift Lounge in downtown Walnut Creek is opening by the end of April. The inside has been completely remodeled; the huge ceiling, wooden planks throughout, concrete floors and counters look beautiful. It reminded me of coffee shops straight out of Portland. There is going to be some serious coffee brewing going on with two Slayer espresso machines only available in a couple of other Bay Area locations.

In addition to artisinal coffee (initially local and national roasters will be featured) such as Sightglass and Four Barrel, with Stumptown cold brew and nitro cold brew available on draft, there will also be a selection of coffee based cocktails, craft brews and wine. Samovar teas and cold pressed juice will be available for non-coffee drinkers. As for cuisine, baked goods from local bakery 54 Mint as well as their own dishes made with seasonally fresh ingredients such as waffles and more will be featured.

Although I’m more of a tea drinker I think after visiting this place I may end up being turned on to coffee. This is going to be amazing! Check out their Facebook page here and website here and check out plenty of photos of the inside below.
