A new cafe at Danbury Library, K’s Café, had a ribbon cutting and grand opening yesterday. The café offers hot and cold sandwiches, soups, salads, coffee, and other beverages.
Danbury Library has been searching for a partner to fill the space for a while. The cafe space has been vacant for about two years, after the previous operator left to pursue other opportunities.
Owner and operator Kervin Francois has a degree in Culinary Art and Food Service Management and has worked in the food service industry for over 10 years, including for Sodexo. He proposed $500 a month rent to the City Council when the lease was considered last year.
The Council approved a lease for Bagelman, but the company opted not to go forward with the project. The next proposal came from the owner of Nardellis on Newtown Road, but that also fell through.
