Simon’s Coffee Shop was such a hit that it deserved a spin-off, something that you don’t see too often in the restaurant and bar scene. That’s the story behind Nine Bar Espresso, and we’re here to preach the merits of the best cold brew available around here.
It’s a nitro cold brew on tap, and you can get it with sandwiches or conversation—suit yourself. The coffee is roasted locally by Gracenote Coffee Roasters, the teas are curated by Camellia Sinensis, and the pastries are baked and delivered daily by A&J King Artisan Bakers in nearby Salem.
Nine Bar Espresso is a community-minded hub and a great space to meet up for a casual coffee—if you’re lucky, snag a much-coveted seat at the window and rub it in with all the Starbucks-wielding passersby.
Try a flat white with oat milk, the almond croissant, and the blueberry muffins. Friendly baristas. No public bathroom.
