Honest Coffee Roasters has found a new home for their second location in Edgewood. Construction begins in February with the hope to open in April 2023.

“The former Dreamcakes location has been attractive to our team for a while. Our partner Vinh Tran—who owns Ono Poke at Edgewood—determined the new space would make a great home for Honest Coffee. Edgewood carries all of the beautiful qualities of a family-friendly neighborhood. We can’t wait to be part of the community!”
