Fox Park Coffee Bar

Across from the Baja Bean patio, Fox Park Coffee Bar is taking shape. A peek through the window reveals a bar lining one wall and small tables and chairs the other. It's been a while since Starbuck's Corner domination has been challenged. A new alternative is welcome. The last challenger, Espresso Royale Caffe, which was housed in the current location of Qdoba, not surpisingly closed at least three years ago. Its gross mismanagement was tempered by its commitment to selling coffee and alcohol. The ERC was also endearingly consistent: every cup of coffee came with grounds in the bottom.
