The rumors are true, java lovers: Local coffee roasters Phoenix Coffee will open a cafe in Ohio City this summer in an as-of-yet unreleased location. Phoenix already has shops on Lee Road and Coventry in Cleveland Heights and on E. 9th St. downtown. The Ohio City shop will be its first franchise on the west side.

Coffee director Christopher Feran says Phoenix is aiming for "late summer" for an opening, likely sometime in August. He says they intend to create "a little bit of a different feel" there.

"We're going to take the opportunity to be a little more adventurous, and a little more playful with the atmosphere as well as the menu," Feran says.

Feran wouldn't comment on the exact location of the space — "it's not yet public," he says — but did hint that it would be more "within the community rather than on W. 25th."

Koffie Cafe on Market Ave. (one half of the former Talkies) and Rising Star Coffee Roasters are the two current haunts for coffee-shop seekers on the near west side. Neither offer extensive seating.

Feran says that though the floor plan for the new Phoenix location isn't "huge," they are planning to accommodate folks who want "a third place to hang out, other than home and work." Among other things, Feran says, there will be a patio. They also plan to work cooperatively with the bike community, as they do consistently at their other locations.
