NORWAY – The owner of Cafe Nomad plans to open the business next spring, giving area residents, shoppers and workers one more dining option on Main Street.

Owner Scott Berk said Monday that the cafe will be open for breakfast and lunch.

Menu items will include muffins, bagels, wrap sandwiches and “really good coffee” made with “lots of love and care,” he said. The cafe will have a full espresso bar that will offer espresso, lattes, and cappuccino.

“It’s going to be a good place to come and socialize,” Berk said.

The cafe will operate Monday through Saturday and will probably open at 6 and close at 3, he said.

Berk lives in Otisfield and is one half of a partnership, Nomad Properties, that purchased the building at 450 Main St. in November 2003 for approximately $80,000. Berk is the sole owner of the cafe.

The partnership’s other half, Grant Sisler, lives in San Francisco.

The cafe is still under construction, but Berk said he plans to open in mid- to late-spring 2006.

The building formerly housed a bookstore until the business moved. Berk said he renovated the three upstairs apartments into two apartments, one of which has a tenant who is using the apartment as office space. The other apartment will be residential, Berk said.
