Breaking news: 8th Street Lofts and Caffé Port Town on the rebound

Developers Dean and Jan Thomas are laying the groundwork to re-open the café and coffeehouse at the 8th Street Lofts complex.

The facility was closed in late January for lack of the proper Health Department permits. It is expected to re-open in 30-45 days.

The building will be re-named Port Town Plaza. The coffee bar will again serve espresso and other beverages and an Italian café and deli will serve light meals. Free wireless internet access will resume as well.

The retail shops and hair salon have remained open during the food-service closure.

Port Town Hall, adjacent to the shops, is now available for private parties. Loft apartments are available for lease on the second floor.

The complex has just launched new websites in preparation for a grand re-opening this spring.
