Second State Coffee (formerly Black Tap Coffee) will expand to Mount Pleasant and install 2 Nixons chef Jeffrey Stoneberger as culinary director. The beloved Beaufain Street coffee shop took over Collective Coffee Co. and plans to rebrand as Second State Coffee, but co-owner Ross Jett says that they are unsure of the timeline of the transition at this point.
With Stoneberger in the kitchen, the food offerings will change. The chef says that brunch, or as he says “eggs and booze,” aren’t normally what he chooses to cook, but he wants to be able to offer Charleston something a bit different for breakfast and lunch.
“Over the last few months I’ve been trying to make a decision which would give me & my concepts/family a little more flexibility,” says Stoneberger, “And honestly do something a little bit different and over the weekend we put in place an opportunity where I would become culinary director partner at Second State Coffee.”
Stoneberger’s ramen pop-ups at Proof will continue on Fridays and Saturdays.
