Kimball Township’s newest business is officially open. NOLA Cafe opened to the public this week after the final equipment installations and inspections.
Kimball residents, Andrea and Christopher Shifflett, hope to share their love of New Orleans through New Orleans style food, beverages, and desserts as well as their classic New Orleans decor. They also want to incorporate the inclusive feel of the southern city, where everyone is welcome. Over the course of 10 years, they’ve tried four other times to create their dream. Andrea says they’ve hit roadblocks in previous attempts, but this time they have made it happened.
This family-owned coffee shop’s signature beverage is the praline latte with other beverage specialties including hot chocolate and Bubble Tea. As far as food, the sharable muffaletta will be the featured item as well as a variety of homemade baked goods. The shop is located at 5287 Lapeer Road. The Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce will host a grand opening ceremony for the cafe on March 13 at 4 p.m.
