"When is Fortezza opening?" I’ve been hearing this question a lot lately. With a beautiful Calhoun Street storefront that has been teasing us for months, I am happy to report that after their soft opening this week, they officially open for business on Monday, April 28 at 7 a.m. The public is going to love this new space.
Fortezza Coffee has large open rooms with natural light, wooden floors, big wood tables, a beautiful Modbar, plenty of seating, and food/drinks that actually taste as good as it looks. Located at 819 S. Calhoun Street, you can find them directly across the street from 816 Pint & Slice and The Dash-In. There are plenty of parking spots and bike racks within a block of their new downtown location.
Offering up everything from specialty coffees to quiche and sandwiches, they are providing more than just coffee on the go. There is a solid menu, and meeting rooms for the public to reserve. Owner Sean Wang has been working hard to create an environment that is unique to the downtown Fort Wayne scene. One step into this new space, and you will be surrounded by beauty, from the food, to the floors and the ceilings. Everything is perfectly put together.
They will be open this week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for their soft opening if you would like to stop in and check it out. Starting Monday, they will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, 8 a.m to 7 p.m. on Saturdays, and closed on Sundays. Welcome to downtown Fort Wayne, Fortezza! We are thrilled for your arrival and wish you great success. After what I experienced today, I have no doubt that everyone else will love it, too
