The Edge's District's new cafe/coffee roaster/community space/retail incubator officially opens in a couple of weeks. But, today MBJ is giving readers a sneak peek.
Chef and restaurant consultant Timothy Barker, along with Phil Massey, co-owner of High Cotton Brewing Co., partnered on the project located next door to High Cotton, at 600 Monroe Ave. The nearly 100-year-old building once was home to an ironworks facility, an auto upholstery business and a chrome plating shop. The interior design has subtle odes to its auto history, including a banquette that was custom-designed to look like the backseat of a Cadillac.
