Stone Creek Coffee will be charting new territory with its cafe and kitchen at 2650 N. Downer Ave. on Milwaukee's East Side.

The opening date for the new cafe, originally slated for Friday, May 11, has since been pushed back to Friday, May 25.

However, when the new venue opens, it comes complete with a spacious corner patio, inventive seating options and a brand new food program.

Project EAT is the name of Stone Creek’s new culinary offerings, which will focus on comfort food items that are elegant, accessible and transparent (EAT). The new menu is designed to complement Stone Creek’s established and ever-growing farm-to-cup coffee program.

The menu will offer options that can be enjoyed in the cafe, on the patio or taken to go. The new food program also will be implemented at the Stone Creek Factor Cafe on 5th Street by mid-summer, with other cafes following later in 2018.

The new cafe is expected to feature seating for around 50 inside, as well as an additional 50 on the patio, and a comfortable outdoor area, complete with a green space, which will resemble the space designed for Stone Creek's Madison cafe.

Watch OnMilwaukee for more information about Stone Creek Cafe & Kitchen and Project EAT as it becomes available.
