If you haven’t tried out North Lime Coffee & Donuts in Old Louisville yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. A few months ago, this Weyland Ventures tenant opened up in an old Louisville Gas & Electric Co. facility (yes, circa the 1890s).
The joint effort of Weyland Ventures and North Lime owners Joe Ross, Heidi Hays and Teddy Ray created a cozy, old-meets-new atmosphere with brick walls and unique touches including handmade furniture and finishes. The recently opened second floor features comfy seating and work cubicles where you can collaborate, chat or do a deep dive into your work. Just the right touches for the neighborhood hangout they aspire to be!
BTW — Donuts include classics such as glazed and chocolate-iced varieties. Specialty donuts cycle through with one featured daily. Flavors run the gamut from raspberry lemonade to red, white and blueberry to a vegan chocolate chip pancake donut. Nothing pairs better with a tasty donut than some piping hot coffee. At North Lime, Good Folks Coffee Company, a Louisville-based roastery, supplies the brew.
North Lime’s owners celebrated bringing their Lexington, Ky., brand to Louisville with a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting on July 16 with a welcome by Mariah Gratz Weyland and greetings and a proclamation presented by Mayor Greg Fischer.
If you know where the Edison Center office complex is, North Lime Coffee & Donuts is on the edge of its parking lot. Not sure about the location? Then pop 1228 S. Seventh St. into your Google maps and go get some donuts and coffee. You’ll be glad you did!
