By the looks of her Facebook page, Andrea Kyan and her Pure Sweets & Co. crew have been seriously hard at work these past few months, turning the former Adresse boutique space at 1706 Locust Street into a bakery, cafe and juice bar. I checked with Kyan this morning to see how progress is coming along, since the last time we spoke in the fall, she thought they’d be open by March or April. Looks like things are right on schedule, because Kyan says they’re moving in next week, with a target grand opening date set for March 28th.
The cafe will serve as Pure Sweets’ first walk-in storefront; previously, you could only get Kyan’s popular organic, gluten-free, vegan and kosher baked goods at a few secondary retail locations, like coffee shops, and via delivery. The shop will also sell coffee, pressed juice and prepared grab-and-go lunch food, including a selection of raw dishes.
Get the latest updates on the cafe’s opening over on Pure Sweets Facebook page.
