Sambalatte Expands to The Smith Center, Henderson and More

There will be five locations to choose from in 2018

Local favorites Sambalatte held a grand opening ceremony for its first downtown coffee shop earlier this month, but the owners are already well advanced in plans for another location, less than half a mile to the southwest.

Just one of three future expansions scheduled for next year, work is well under way for a move into The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, estimated to be ready by February. A rendering released by Novus Architecture hints at a ground-floor space featuring indoor seating that Sambalatte describes as including "our brand elements, but has a modern and sophisticated look to match the Smith Center.”

This will be the first casual-dining option for both the venue and surrounding Symphony Park to be open to the public during non-performance days.

Also in the works for the coffee maestros, the larger scale, long-promised Sambalatte Roastery is headed to a yet-to-be announced location early next year, a specialist venture designed “to promote our coffee culture to higher levels.”

And for fans in Henderson, the team updates that equally long-held ambitions to move into the neighborhood have been upgraded to “under negotiations.”
