Coffee Bug, a new drive-through only coffee shop, opened Thursday at 3123 N. Rock Road. It sits next to the new Popeye’s and offers a lengthy list of coffee drinks both hot and cold, sweet and not-sweet. It also offers a few food items, including a ham and cheese “cinnawich,” which is a hot cinnamon roll filled with ham and cheese. Hours are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. The coffee shop’s number is 316-719-2284. See the full menu here.
And a week ago, Randy Ecker and Diana Mershon opened Common Grounds Coffee House at 2812 E. Douglas. The duo also own Seventh Direction Inc., an organization at 212 N. Hillside that offers treatment to recovering addicts.
They opened the shop inside the quaint house on Douglas as a place for their clients to congregate, but anyone is welcome. The inviting new business has plenty of seating downstairs, and rooms upstairs are used for client meetings. Common Grounds offers all the basic coffee drinks plus some pastries. It also offers free wi-fi. Owners might add sandwiches soon. Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For more information, call 316-295-4783.
