Coffee lovers rejoice as one of Minneapolites favorite coffee destinations is about to add another location and this time around it's in Minneapolis' trendy North Loop neighborhood. To be honest, we here at The Development Tracker | Minneapolis are screaming with joy (without trying to spill our coffee of course). Minneapolis, get ready to say hello to Spyhouse West.
Spyhouse Coffee Roasters officially announced yesterday that a new location will open in June on the first floor of Brunswick North Loop, a luxury apartment building completed in 2013 at 915 Washington Avenue North. The company had been alluding to the fact that a new location was in the works for the past couple of weeks and at one point even posted a view of a Spyhouse cup with the skyline behind it and a caption simply stating "X marks the".
Spyhouse Coffee Roasters was founded in 2000 by Christian Johnson who has now successfully grown the company to not only roast their own coffee beans but to also include three very successful locations. Spyhouse Northeast, the most recently added location, opened in 2013 on Broadway and Central in Northeast Minneapolis. Two other locations are located in the Uptown neighborhood with the original being on Nicollet Avenue and the second on a busy corner of Hennepin Avenue.
If there's one thing we absolutely love about Spyhouse, besides their delicious coffee of course, and it's the design of their locations. It's some of the best and most detailed design we've seen in any coffee joint around. We like to say that every space in each location is a truly "Instagramable" corner... quite literally (check out their Instagram to see). Christian is responsible for much of the design that you see at any of the Spyhouse locations you visit. Customer are quick to notice that there often is mid-century design atheistic to these locations, many of which include antiques the Christian has collected over time.
The newest location in Northeast that opened in 2013 is in the historic Land 0' Nod Mattress factory which has since then been converted into a thriving office and retail building called "The Broadway". That particular Spyhouse location sports a beautiful early 20th century design which we absolutely love.
So that has us thinking, what's in store for the next Spyhouse location?
If you know of the Brunswick North Loop building you know that its very modern in its design. So this has our brains racked and extremely excited to see just what Spyhouse does with their newest location. Seeing that all of the locations sport a design theme from the first part of the 20th century, could we see Spyhouse's first modern store design emerge? The space in which they will be locating includes entirely glass walls and extremely tall ceilings.
Only time will tell what the new location will look like, unless we can get our hands on some construction plans somehow. We'll just patiently wait with our Spyhouse Coffee in our hand until Spyhouse West officially opens come June.
