Fort Thomas Coffee Opening This Summer
As I mentioned last week, a new independent coffee shop is opening in Fort Thomas. Good friends of my family Lori and David Valentine are opening Fort Thomas Coffee in the former Three French Hens space at 118 North Fort Thomas Avenue this summer.
Fort Thomas Coffee, which will feature gourmet coffee and full espresso bar as well as breakfast, lunch and snacks, was created to serve as a community hub for the city.
"Our mission for Fort Thomas Coffee is about more than just coffee," said founder Lori Valentine. "We want to deepen community in Fort Thomas by providing a place that encourages connection and creativity. We will be a true neighborhood coffee shop."
Lori and David, who have children in Fort Thomas schools and have lived in the city for 12 years, want to integrate the coffee shop into the community, supporting local schools, organizations and neighbors with a special focus on creative endeavors.
Menu items from Fort Thomas Coffee will range from breakfast options like muffins, bagels, and otameal, to chicken salad sandwiches and soup for lunch. A variety of sweets and snacks will also be available. But the star will be the coffee... the coffee and the community.
