Coming soon: Urban Bean at Lake & Bryant

The owner of Urban Bean is renovating a new location in the former Jackson’s Coffee & Gelato space at 822 W. Lake.

Building owner John Meldahl said he expects the shop to open this spring.

“Things are coming along at our new location on Lake & Bryant,” states a post on the Urban Bean website. “We have unearthed a beautiful white tile floor, began to structure the new coffee bar and, of course, we saved time for coffee and a pipe.”

Jackson’s Coffee closed last winter, and co-owner Tom Paschke is starting a new business called Two Gelato Guys with a commissary in Burnsville. The shop supplies gelato to places like Surdyk’s and Cafe Vin at 56th & Xerxes, and it’s aiming to raise $21,000 for the move on fundme.com
