Changes coming at Maplewood art café

January 26th 03:01pm, 2010

012610_artisancaffeCooperElla Coffee Shop & Cafe will become Artisan Caffé Monday, Feb. 1, noted chef Steven Baumgartner, who also promised a different approach to the menu in the coming weeks.

“Over in the café, we’re changing to fresher produce,” Baumgartner said. “We’re going to do as much organic or local producers as possible, which of course in the winter is not completely gonna happen. But we’re trying to get it all ready so that by spring, we can start really moving it in.

“I’m cutting the menu down,” he added, “and we’re going to basically have 10 new items that rotate out weekly … just to shake it up and make the menu a little bit more interesting.” The weekly rotation at the art café at 2743 Sutton Blvd. will draw on a pool of hundreds of potential menu items, said Baumgartner.

    I know they’re new, but they need a review. My experience so far: three visits–tainted meat, stale butter packets, black bean salad way too old to be served, those “Mookie” things–ick–hot breakfast served cold, coffee’s ok, cooking iffy, staff tense, seem stressed. Not a comfy spot anymore.

    Cooper Ella’s food wasn’t all that great, but they had a couple of things–Cajun wrap, green salad–and you could ask for things–extra toasty toast, crispy bacon–and mention deficiencies without staff getting huffy.
