Big big news in the Alma Universe!
As of this week, our production has officially moved to SE 7th and Main! After passing inspection (woo hoo!) we are busy at work in the new space. Soon, we will open our second retail counter in the space, where you'll be able to pick up a drinking chocolate, a Thai Peanut Bar, and a cookie while you watch us do our thing in the open kitchen. We're pretty much beside ourselves with excitement.
The other exciting thing about our new space is the space itself.
The building, which once-upon-a-time was a creamery, got a major refurbish, and we are one third of a stellar tenant trio alongside Ancient Heritage Dairy and Renata Restaurant. It's a pretty serious situation, being this close to world class cheese, the most delicate pastas, and a wine and cocktail menu that calls to us every day at 5pm...
Renata is amazing, and you should go there immediately, but if you're in a rush Renata also has a sweet little jewel box commissary called Mi Piace where you can pop in Mon-Sat 10am-5pm for our chocolate and the cheese made on site, as well as all kinds of local and Italian specialty goods.
Of course there is the cheese...
All of this honey:
And lovely Miranda's Plum Tree Jam!
And wine! And salt! And good sardines, cherries, crackers, pistachio paste, olive oil, vinegars...And ALMA CHOCOLATE, of course. It's heaven. We hope this means you'll never show up to a dinner party empty handed again !
More to come from the Weatherly Building...
