Are you a fan of Nova Espresso? Then you have to try their new midtown location, Nova Market. Not sure what to expect? Keep reading!
What is Nova Market?
Nova Market is an expansion of Nova Espresso, with a twist. Rather than completely duplicate the downtown location, owners Tim and Claire Gautreaux created a coffee shop, eatery and corner store all in one.
The idea for this unique combination came from the pandemic.
“So the goal would be that you could come in, get a cup of coffee, get a meal and also… have an intentional, curated source of goods that you could cook a meal… We’ll have… toilet paper and Band-Aids, just trying to make it as essential as possible. And a lot of that comes out of having a full year of COVID, this mantra of essential business, essential business.Tim Gautreaux, owner, on The Mobile Alabama Business Podcast
What should I expect?
If you can’t tell from the photos, Nova Market’s food menu is to die for. Their breakfast and lunch made perfectly to order are available every day but Mondays and Tuesdays. But, don’t worry. Nova Market offers “Grab n’ Go” meals on the days when the kitchen is closed so that you never have to shop hungry.
Nova Market will also be offering the same delicious coffee selection available at Nova Espresso. Make sure you try their Mardi Gras specials like the Krewe De Matcha, Queen of Hearts Latte and King Cake Cappuccino before it’s too late!
Hit your caffeine quota already? In addition to the curated selection of goods and the same great coffee menu, you can buy wine and beer by the glass to sip while you shop.
If you think that’s cool, trust me, it gets even cooler. Nova Market isn’t any ordinary store. Of course, everyday necessities like toilet paper, milk, eggs and cleaning products will be available, but much of the selection at Nova Market is handpicked by the Nova team. You’ll be able to get everything you need to make a delicious dinner based on the team’s favorite ingredients (and favorite recipes).
