BrixÃ¢â?¬ÂŠah, Terrace CafÃ?Â© lands a spot at MJH
After losing the name of her restaurant to a pizza franchise moving to town this summer, Brix Terrace Caf© (which is now supposed to be called the Terrace Caf©) owner Karen Laetare has received some good news. The Martha Jefferson Hospital outpatient facility on Pantops has selected her to operate its caf©, which had been run by Tiger Fuel and Simply Delicious Catering.
“Someone told me I should call it the Briquette,” jokes Laetre, “ but I thought I would get in trouble with the Kingsford charcoal company.”
Instead, it will be called the Terrace Cafe @ Martha J and serve outside visitors and hospital patients and employees. For now, it will be open Monday-Friday from 7am to 3pm. The menu will have the same offerings as Brix; easy grab and go, specialty sandwiches, coffee, pastries, daily hot food menu item and soups. Brix will also be the exclusive caterer for the hospital functions.
"This is a great opportunity for Brix, and it is so refreshing to be connected with a Foundation like Martha Jefferson who wants a small business to succeed,” says Laetare. “It is truly a win-win situation built on great respect for each other.”
