Ownership of the longtime cafe at Lake Anne Plaza officially changed hands on Friday. New owners Eve and Rick Thompson, who are longtime Lake Anne residents, plan a top-to-bottom renovation, new staff and new menu items.
While the renovations are underway, the coffee house patio will be open during Saturday’s Farmers Market. Tomorrow, there will be free coffee and pastry samples. On following Saturdays, limited items will be available for purchase (for example, brewed coffee only; they will not be making espresso drinks until they are fully reopened, Even Thompson said).
Lake Anne Coffee House will be using coffee blends from Manassas-based Monument Coffee Roasters and pastries from Sterling’s Baguette Republic. Thompson said it is the businesses’ goal to use as many locally-sourced products as possible.
The Thompsons hope to complete renovations and be fully open in November.
(Editor’s Note: Eve Thompson’s other business, Reston Real Estate, is a Reston Now sponsor).
