Update 7/2/2012: Portico has closed.
Portico is a coffee shop and cafe located at 85 Parsons Ave and has been open since Fall 2010. This summer, Portico changed ownership, and according to new owner Doug Steiger, things have been going great.
Steiger says they recently built a patio for outdoor dining and added another person to the daily shift rotation to accommodate customers. They are also in the process of putting together a catering menu for office meetings and other small events.
“We’ve had great support from local residents,” says Steiger. “We feel that we have created a comfortable atmosphere where folks can come, have a coffee, and just hang out for a bit.”
Steiger also talks about how important it is for him and his business to be a part of the Olde Towne East community.
He also mentions that he just purchased a house on Oak St.
Portico is open for breakfast and lunch. They serve coffee and espresso drinks with various other homemade goodies, with vegan options available.
