When owners Zach Patterson, Austin Melrose and Christine Solomon were building Melrose Umbrella Co., they envisioned a well-crafted and comfortable location to enjoy espresso, coffee and tea. This sentiment was continually echoed and affirmed by the neighborhood. After a year and a half of operating their cocktail program, they have now officially launched their long-awaited Craft Coffee Bar—evolving the space into the special and unique imbibery that they’ve always wanted!
To accomplish their goal of creating an all-day destination they sought out a barista with the inspiration, expertise and passion in creating a program that paralleled their existing cocktail program. Program Manager, Matt Sala, describes his approach to coffee as holistic and individualistic with a dedication to providing guests with a uniquely tailored experience.
He has put together a menu that includes Single Origin Coffees from countries around the world, including Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador. Ethiopia, Guatemala and Kenya. Guests can enjoy Melrose Umbrella Company’s unique and cozy atmosphere while sipping Espressos, Americanos, Cappucinos and a variety of Lattes and Mochas. And for tea lovers, there’s a fine selection of intriguing iced and hot teas including Camellia Sinensis, Green, Oolong, Black and Herbal. Also available are breakfast pastries by Farmshop, and, soon, morning sandwiches by neighbor, chef Eric Greenspan.
Now Melrose Umbrella Company can also become your new favorite neighborhood craft coffee house. Open from 9a-5p, they have plenty of seating and free wifi—a great place to start your day!
