An Arts District coffee shop plans to expand its footprint to Downtown Summerlin. Makers & Finders confirms reports from April that the new location will feature a similar menu of “Latin comfort foods” as well as coffee and an “updated look.” The restaurant takes over a 2,300-square-foot space near Macy’s at the outdoor shopping center. When open, the coffee house will offer indoor and outdoor seating.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will remain on the menu, with arepas, empanadas, plantain chips, chilaquiles, and vegan and vegetarian options. Owner Josh Molina says a daily happy hour arrives when the new location opens this fall.
Makers & Finders offers seven different brewing methods and five single-origin beans, along with beer, wine and mimosas in lavender, hibiscus and blueberry. A tea bar features options for Tealet such as Lavender Fog and Thyolo Roasted Green Tea. The new space also includes a matcha bar that uses Japanese green tea powder.
Molina tapped Christian Gonzales, formerly of Herbs & Rye, as the general manager.
Back in 2015, Molina originally planned to expand to Henderson, then scrapped those plans in April. Already Public Works Coffee Bar opened on the bottom floor of Southend on Water, a 6,500-square-foot office building being constructed on Water Street.
