A local salon owner is trying her hand at a high end, contemporary café inspired by multiple cultures.
A local salon owner plans to open a French- and Japanese-inspired cafe in the West End.
Deborah Moody expects to open Karam Paris Caffe at 8906 W. Broad St. in the Gold’s Gym Plaza at West Tower in May or June. Moody said she has a five-year lease for the 1,300-square-foot space, formerly home to a Quiznos.
Karam Paris Caffe will serve bread, pastries, sandwiches and coffee influenced by French culture. Moody said she wants it to be the kind of place where people can spend hours in a low-key, contemporary setting.
“It’s basically a very upscale coffee shop,” she said.
Moody says she chose the Gold’s Gym Plaza because of its proximity to Gelati Celesti, an established gelato proprietor with lots of foot traffic.
