In The Loop Coffee Reopens For Takeout and Curbside

After having to miss their fourth anniversary celebration (on 4/4) because of the COVID-19 restrictions, In The Loop Coffee is now back open with takeout and curbside service, online ordering, a restocked treat jar for dogs and Baby Yoda cookies for humans (May the 4th be with you).

Owner Marisa Thom said the weeks of being shut down were agonizing. “The girls were so missing making the drinks and just being together, being around people and interacting with people,” she said. “And the dogs, we really missed seeing the dogs.”

When the governor’s order was issued, Thom said she thought it was in the best interests of the neighborhood to shut down completely. She kept all her employees on the payroll, paying them full wages and focused on setting up online and app-based ordering for takeout or curbside pickup.

The indoor dining area is now cordoned off, there are Xs on the floor, six feet apart, to help people keep their distance while waiting in line. And those who order through the Jump! Coffee app can pick up their orders on a table outside the shop without having to wait in line.

At the outset, In The Loop is offering most of the same drinks and food as before, and keeping the same hours (7a-6p Monday-Saturday, 8a-2p Sunday), but will see how things go before deciding whether any changes are necessary.
