Danneman's Opens in O4W

Danneman’s, a new coffee shop located in a two-story historic brick building in the Old Fourth Ward is now open for business.  Open daily and a WiFi hotspot, Danneman’s serves locally roasted coffee, freshly baked breads and breakfast foods, a selection of sandwiches and salads, and a variety of other tasty treats. With a spacious 1100 square-foot second floor that overlooks the corner of Boulevard and Edgewood Ave., Danneman’s also hosts an array of events and art openings, including Friday morning yoga classes, modern dance classes, Tango milonga’s, open-mic nights, DJs, live music and much more.

Opened by local residents Joe Stewardson and Kate Pedrick, the recently renovated spot is named after Danneman’s Super Market, the former long-term neighborhood grocery store dating back to the 1930’s.  Paying homage to the rich history of the area and the building, which was originally built in the early 1900s, the new neighborhood coffee shop has a retro-nostalgic feel complimented by an inviting and friendly atmosphere.  The playful décor infuses the original Danneman’s Super Market sign and features exposed brick walls, tall ceilings, wood floors, large vintage windows, seating vignettes for work and conversation, fresh flowers, and Mid Century accents and furnishings including lab tables and Navy chairs.

Ongoing events promise to be a large part of Danneman’s repertoire, including:
