Espresso Shop, a Washington state-born cafe known for its drive-thrus and speedy service, is expanding to Nevada with a location on downtown’s Charleston Boulevard.
The coffee shop, founded in Edgewood, WA, by former barista Rochelle Carpenter, will serve hot and cold drinks from a two-lane drive thrus. It will be the seventh location overall, and the first outside of Washington.
The Las Vegas outpost will replace a fire damaged, long vacant property at 1755 E. Charleston Boulevard, sharing a parking lot with the former home of Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen, a familiar marker for downtown residents.
The new 723-square-foot coffee shop will add two lanes for easy access and is expecting to be open daily from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be no walk-up service, or interior seating.
The cafe’s menu includes a long roster of coffees, energy drinks and elixirs, sodas, lemonade, and smoothies, plus specialty choices including a butterscotch macchiato, a Snicker mocha, the Funky Monkey mixed with chocolate, banana and hazelnut, and an Oreo and Reese’s blended coffee.
Snack include breakfast and lunch sandwiches, coffee cake, mini doughnuts, bagels, muffins and bowls of Umpqua Oats. An estimated debut date for the cafe has not yet been announced.
