We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Three years after bowing out of Handsome Coffee Roasters (the brand he co-founded in 2010, and sold to Blue Bottle in 2014) and opening up a new Arts District coffeeshop (Blacktop Coffee), Tyler Wells is set to open his latest cafe. As our friends at Eater note, Wells' new cafe will be dubbed Nice Coffee Bar.

The coffee bar will occupy a recently blossomed kiosk at City National Plaza, and will serve (at the very least) donuts in addition to coffee. Nice will open next Friday, April 14, and will keep daily hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Nice Coffee Bar is located at 515 Flower St. in Downtown
