With a distinct chill in the air today, you might be craving soup more than ices and popsicles. And at our local seasonal shops, you won’t have long to wait. Here’s what to expect:
Coming Soon: A Gluten-Free Cafe
Uncle Louie G’s, 741 Union St near 5th Ave
The Union Street ice spot seems to have already closed for the season, but the space won’t reopen with its winter business until November, when our own Stoop contributor (and gluten-free guide) Emily Hannon launches a 100% gluten-free pop-up cafe. We’ll have more details, including a look at the menu, after we sit down with Emily and her business partner soon.
Coming Soon: Winter Warmers
People’s Pops, 808 Union St near 7th Ave
This is the pop shop’s last week of the season, so stop by to try an apple pie pop before they disappear until next April (though you can still find pops for sale at local Union Market locations). The sandwich guys from Landhaus won’t be returning, but this winter we’ll get to warm up with hot chocolate, mulled apple cider, and customizable s’mores in a shop founded by two friends, Eric Holstein and Madison Gouzie. They’re officially opening on Halloween, when they’ll be offering free samples of snacks and hot drinks for trick-or-treaters. Again, we’ll have more from the pair after we talk to them in the next couple days.
Returning Soon: Soup Bowl
Uncle Louie G’s, 321 7th Ave near 9th St
For frozen treat die hards, this is the place to be, as it stays open the longest. They tell us they’ll end their season on October 15, then the space may be closed for a few days of clean-up and transitioning before the popular (and delicious) Soup Bowl returns for another winter.
