Good news! Coffee & Cone is under new ownership that plans to stay open year-round. Yes, you read that correctly, ice cream and coffee 12-9 everyday, which seems pretty smart when we are heading towards some dark/rainy stay-at-home but I need ice cream because I'm lonely kind of days. Edward (ie: Eddie to friends, photo below, mask only off for 6 seconds) and his wife Michelle are the new owners of this location at 1 Lakeshore Plaza since August 3rd. Eddie was formerly in construction and is planning on a fresh coat of paint.
When I asked Eddie to tell me 'the scoop' (I'm really on my game today, right?), he said their fresh coffee beans come from Middle Fork Roasters out of Seattle. A 12 oz latte is $3.50 or $4 for a 16 oz. The ice cream is still the same Cascade Glacier brand out of OR that Coffee & Cone customers have always enjoyed. A generous kids scoop is $3.50 or $4.50 for regular heaping scoop. My favorite new addition is the walk-up window where a masked/gloved smiling person will fetch you a dreamy delight without having to step foot indoors. Grab your treat and then enjoy it in Marina Park just steps away. Starting in November there will be a new Polish Bakery pop-up offering paczkis and Euro pastries every Saturday. Don't forget this little hidden gem 'under the stair's at Lakeshore Plaza, our small businesses need us!
