Salisbury coffee lovers, rejoice

SALISBURY — Salisbury residents feeling adrift in the morning with the closing of The Roast coffee shop can relax — relief is on the way.Pete Hathaway and Bruce Young of The Ragamont are opening The Roost in the same space occupied for years by Joe Jaklitsch’s The Roast (behind the Salisbury Pharmacy) on Monday, Nov. 21.On Tuesday morning, Nov. 8, Jason Vidal and Bob Schroeder of Precision Renovations, who had been working on Hathaway and Young’s new bakery across Main Street (in the former Eliza Peet building), were busy doing what Hathaway described as a “facelift.”The Ragamont’s George Alvarez was cleaning out the back kitchen area.Hathaway said he had heard rumors that The Roost wouldn’t sell coffee, would open at 11 a.m., would only be for dinner.“I don’t know where these things come from,” he laughed.The Roost will be open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday (closing earlier on Sunday).And yes, there will be coffee — from Ancestral Coffees. Also on hand, cold drinks, and teas from Harney and Sons.Young said the morning fare will include muffins, scones, croissants, egg sandwiches (with Irish bacon) and a yogurt, fruit and granola parfait.Lunchtime will feature soups and sandwiches, and in the interest of speed, there will be three or four premade “really good sandwiches,” all on Ragamont homemade bread.“Bruce, by profession, is a really good bread maker,” said Hathaway.The bread shop, which is on hold until The Roost is up and running, came about because guests at Ragamont’s catered events kept asking about the bread.So when the coffee shop space became available it seemed like a natural fit.“We weren’t necessarily looking for a coffee shop,” Hathaway said. “It evolved incredibly quickly.”“It’s a perfect fit,” added Young. “If someone eats the sandwich and likes it, they can walk across the street and buy the bread.”
