UPDATED: Another eatery downtown? New cafe planned for 135 E. Market.


(Updated at 11:25 a.m.)

There was a hopeful article in the Tuesday edition of the New Albany Tribune pertaining to the prospects for another new eatery downtown.

Teresa Clancy, wife of Bistro New Albany’s Chef Dave Clancy, plans to open a café called Treet in the ground floor of the 1870’s-era building at 135 E. Market Street (across from the Grand and bNA), which is being rehabbed by Matt and Jessica Bergman.

Forgive me for being inexact, but I left the newspaper at home this morning. One passage in the article that engendered hope in the Confidential household referred to plans to serve espresso drinks at the new establishment, which may be open in November.

At some point in the life of New Albany, there’ll be an espresso machine downtown and someone who knows how to use it properly. I’m sure of it, and my guess would be that Teresa does. When it finally happens, our patronage is assured.

See the Tribune’s Downtown Diligence in New Albany for more information about the building.
