After a series of construction delays, Anecdote Cafe has softly opened for business in the Golden Triangle. The cafe fills the hole left in the neighborhood's coffee scene when Rooster & Moon shuttered last September after eight years in business.

Located in Rooster & Moon’s former space at 955 Bannock Street, Anecdote is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The cafe is closed on Tuesdays.

Anecdote provides all the cafe essentials, including coffee and tea, as well as a selection of pastries, sandwiches and snacks. Among the options are glazed scones, cinnamon rolls, and raspberry muffins topped with almond slivers. Anecdote also serves a selection of spirits, with happy-hour specials running from 3 to 6 p.m. daily.

Anecdote is currently running with a limited menu, but plans to add new baked goods as the kitchen is completed and up and running. Along with fresh pastries, look for community events and art installations in the near future.
