Calling all java junkies! New coffee shops opening up around Spokane / Coeur d' Alene

Cedar Coffee now open on N. Monroe

Coeur Coffeehouse was a favorite for many at 701 N. Monroe at the north bank of Monroe St. Bridge. Coeur, however abruptly closed their doors back in April. But coffee is coming back to the space as after some remodeling new owners Igor & Iryna Anisimov have stepped and saved the day so to speak.

The couple, who are natives of Ukraine, have taken over the space and opened an all new coffee house called Cedar Coffee. Of course Cedar Coffee serves an array of espresso drinks using Roast House Coffee but also loose leaf tea's from Davidson's Organic Tea and chai from Mandala Chai Co. which is based here in Spokane. There is even baked goods from Common Crumb Artesian Bakery also from right here in Spokane.

And, check out these quick little videos made by the non-profit Snap who financed this business. They are somewhat like ad's for Snap but they show a bit about Cedar and who the owners are...

Ladder Coffee & Toast opens in North Spokane

Ladder Coffee & Toast isn't a big place, in fact it's just a drive up coffee stand by a shopping center at 603 W. Hastings Rd in North Spokane. But, for it's owners it's probably the biggest thing ever. That's because their coffee business is like a second chance for co-owner Aaron Rivkin who is a 2 time felon and former heroin addict who came upon the coffee industry a few years ago for a job while turning his life back around. The plan now is to use this new business as a way to people a second chance with job and life skills and even teach community members about how to start a business of their own.

Ladder started as a "pop up " style of coffee shop and this is it's first permanent location. Ladder Coffee & Toast serves a number of unique espresso drinks, teas and chai from Mandala Chai Co. . And, as mentioned in the name ... yeah, toast! A few specialty toast options are also offered.
