A coffee shop downtown has added something a little stronger to its drink menu.

Ferris Coffee & Nut Company today began serving beer and wine at its location in the Trust Building, at 40 Pearl St. NW.

The rotating variety of local, regional, national and international drinks is in addition to the location’s existing coffee and espresso bar.

Ferris also plans to unveil a new food menu, including bar snacks and charcuterie, at the location soon.

David VanTongeren, then director of retail and now director of talent and resource strategy at Ferris, previously told the Business Journal the decision was part of the company’s long-term plan since opening the location in 2016.

“Our intent for our downtown café … has always been to serve alcohol alongside coffee and to create a more metropolitan café environment that caters to the downtown professional crowd,” VanTongeren said in February.

The café is open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
