There’s been a coffee shop at 2928 W Cary St. since 1979 when Jay Rostov’s Carytown Coffee & Tea Co. opened. It’s had various names and owners since, but the most recent long-running business in that location has been Capital Coffee & Desserts.
Beth Oristian, who worked with James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Kim Boyce at Bakeshop in Portland, Oregon, has bought the business and changed the name to Sugar & Twine. The shop will soon get a makeover, with new flooring, new paint inside and out and a little reorganization.
Although she has been open since the beginning of August and has digital renderings of the new space’s design in hand, Oristian needs a little help turning those drawings into reality and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to close the gap.
“I'm thrilled to share my craft with you and promise that you'll be able to taste the difference,” Oristian says on the coffee shop’s page. “From hand pies to Danish, cookies to cakes, Sugar & Twine will deliver deliciousness for all to enjoy.”
