Fáilte Irish Imports, 113 South Upper Street, is adding a coffee shop. Owner Liza Hendley-Betz said that starting at 8 a.m. July 4, Fáilte will serve espresso, cappuccino, latte, iced coffees and flavored coffees made with Magic Beans coffee beans.
The store also will have Irish tea, and Irish scones and Irish brown bread from Sunrise Bakery, with Irish butter and jam.
Beginning July 6, Fáilte will be open 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday through the summer.
"We want to get the morning traffic. We've been in business for 14 years and want to do something a little different," she said. "I've always wanted a little tea shop. So we are starting small but we have room to expand."
