Fairmount's OCF Coffee House sets opening

An accountant's dream: Its first day is Jan. 1.

Fairmount's OCF Coffee House sets opening

OCF Coffee House's third location - where Mugshots was, at 2100 Fairmount Ave. - will open Jan. 1.

The space is four times the size of OCF's two locations (18th and South and 20th and Federal), and the menu is far more ambitious - real breakfast/brunch/lunch. Bloody Mary and mimosa mixes will be available for BYOB.

Brunch and lunch will be served from opening to 4 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, open to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Coffee shop will be open to 10 p.m. every day.

The only rub are the new windows in the historic building, which have been a topic of controversy with the city Historical Commission. Apparently, cafe operator OCF Realty installed windows according to a long-ago approved but never-implemented plan - and did not consult with the neighbors first. See this recap.
