A former Central City coffee shop opened its doors in a new Mid-City location last week, and locals say the small eatery is fitting in well with the neighborhood.
Church Alley Coffee Bar, now located at 4201 Canal St., moved from Central City a few months ago. Renee Blanchard, owner, said she wanted a location with a little less commercial structures and more community appeal.
“We really wanted to be settled into a neighborhood,” Blanchard said. “Mid-City is a place i’ve wanted to come for a long time.”
