FoodWire: Foam Now Open

After two years of anticipation, Foam Coffee & Beer at 3359 Jefferson Avenue has finally opened its doors! For the most part.

Owner Mike Glodeck says he's already secured his city liquor license but is still waiting on the state's imprimatur. (When Foam gets going, it'll be pretty much the only bar on Cherokee west of Jefferson).

In the meantime, he'll be selling hot coffee drinks and light snacks. (Our fearless music editor Annie Zaleski blogged about Foam back when the idea was hatched as a possible music venue).

The bespectacled and bearded Glodeck took an unusual approach to launching his business by soliciting input from neighbors for months, both in-person and online. "We wanted this to be a community hub," he says, "so there was no point in me forcing something down people's throats."

Here's Foam's schedule listed on their front door:

M-Th: 7 a.m. - 10 p.m.
Fri. 7 a.m. - 1 a.m.
Sat. 8 a.m. - 1 a.m.
Sun. 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
