A few months ago a team of workmen descended on the tiny space and began transforming it into a neighborhood coffee house, and snoball stand.
The Flagpole Coffee Shop finally opened this week.
A hot cup will set you back $2.19 and it’s a well-considered brew. For a little south of five bucks you can get a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice that comes rushing from a Rube Goldberg apparatus where the barista drops oranges into the top of the contraption, and juice dispenses from the bottom.
It’s a cash-only enterprise with limited hours but is a much-needed addition to this little wedge of Treme.
