arisml.0.jpgThe concept and location for all day cafe Saint Alban was in place the same time restaurateur Brooks Reitz announced Leon's Oyster Shop. The fried chicken and oyster eatery opened in May, and now it almost time for sister restaurant Saint Alban to welcome patrons.

Reitz says that the coffeehouse/evening wine stop will be online on Monday, January 5, at 7:00 a.m. He's brought chef Ari Kolender over from Leon's to create a menu of breakfast pastries, waffles, sandwiches, and fancy cheeses. Saint Alban will be the type of eatery you can cozy up in for all your meals, if you wanted — a latte and banana bread in the morning, a panini and a pint for lunch, and a Bucheron plate and sherry for supper.

The cafe will be open seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (perhaps midnight on the weekends) and is located at 710 King St.
