BHK Cafe coming to Dickson St.

You may be asking yourself, “Now that Hammontree’s has moved out of the Nightbird Books building, what are they going to do in that restaurant space?”

“It’s a cool space,” you might be saying to yourself.

You could also be saying to yourself, “I’ve known for a long time that David Lewis of Brick House Kitchen is going to put a cafe in there. At least, that’s what I heard.”

Listen to yourself. You were right.

According to Lewis, renovations are already underway on BHK Cafe, and the new “bookstore coffee house cafe,” is expected to open sometime this summer.

Lewis announced the vision for his new cafe at the unveiling of Theatre Squared’s 2010-11 season on Sunday.

“At the core of it, we’ll serve the four C’s. Coffee, cheese, chocolate, and cake,” Lewis said. “We’ll also serve a light lunch, and wine and cheese in the evening.”

BHK Cafe will mirror the hours of the bookstore. Lewis said the goal with the rennovatons is to integrate the two spaces more than they have been in the past.

Lisa Sharp, owner of Nightbird Books is pumped to be getting a new neighbor.

“I’m very excited to have David coming in,” Sharp said. “I just think what he’s doing will be a perfect fit. Coffee and cake or wine and cheese will go great with our readings and events.”
