I’m a fan of Anthony “A.J.” Brewer his coffee shop Brewer’s Cafe. He opened his business in Manchester before the current wave of development. What’s even more impressive is that he is constantly giving back to the community with events, fundraisers, and sponsorships.
I’m also a fan of waffles so naturally, I was doubly excited when I read on Richmond BizSense.com about A.J’s new venture, Brewer’s Waffles coming to1309 and 1311 Hull Street.
“Everything really came into place for it to work,” Brewer said of the lease. “When you see what’s happening in the neighborhood, you can either sit on the sidelines or take part in the activity … I choose to keep making a difference.”
Brewer hopes to open the new venture this summer. Brewer’s Cafe, the coffee and sandwich shop he launched about three years ago, will remain open at the corner of Bainbridge and East 12th streets in the neighborhood.
Brewer said future patrons of Brewer’s Waffles can expect various styles of waffles, including vegan and gluten-free items. The menu also will include milkshakes and sodas from Union Hill’s Roaring Pines.
