A sweet looking coffee cart pops up around town, a new pizza truck is in the works, The Roosevelt gets a nice magazine nod, and a Fan restaurant now serves lunch.
Alchemy Coffee, the mobile coffee cart, is now open! You can find owner Eric Spivack brewing on E. Cary Street between 9th and 10th streets Monday – Friday from 7:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Drip coffee as well as hot and iced espresso will be offered. Spivak is a firm believer in letting the beans speak for themselves, so you won’t find any pumpkin spice or shots of skinny vanilla at his coffee stop. Espresso beans will be provided by Richmond’s own Blanchard’s Coffee, and other supplies will be from Counter Culture Coffee out of North Carolina.

Chef Patrick Harris, the owner of Boka Truck, famous for its fusion “takos,” will soon be seen around town serving pizza from a food cart. No catchy name has been released, and the only detail is that the cart will serve up gourmet pizzas and other delights. The press release states that “The developing menu will feature extraordinary pizza choices that you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else.” Facebook and Twitter accounts are currently being worked on that will let diners know the cart’s location on a day-to-day basis.
