What’s up in Shockoe: Coffee, Burgers and a Closing

01/17/2018 10:08 AM by

We celebrate our Shockoe neighbors today with some of our favorite subjects: food!

First the good news- from Richmond Biz Sense:

Coffee maker brewing cafe spot in the Bottom

A century-old Shockoe Bottom building that once housed firehoses and axes soon will be serving up espresso and pastries.
Ironclad Coffee Roasters is preparing to open a cafe in the former fire station building at 1805 E. Grace St.

Burgers at Billy Jack’s Shack

Mike Sabin and Aaron Ludwig, founders of Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint, are planning a Shockoe Bottom location for their other restaurant brand – Billy Jack’s Shack.
Billy Jack’s will fill 5,000 square feet at 1409 E. Cary St., space left vacant about a year ago with the closure of Torero Tapas Bar & Grill and Ibiza Night Club.

The not great news

 The Luncheonette is closed 🙁

Today, January 17th in this wet snow, is the last day and they’re open til 3. They still have an opening in Brookland Park if you want to check them out….Update: Aaaaand never mind, this location is closed and has a new occupant Eggspress (thanks Michael!)

Church Hill has plenty of brunch and (award winning-cross fingers) grab and go options, but what are your favorite all-day breakfast places?
