Copper Kettle Cafe & Catering, the beloved meat-and-three on Granny White, is opening a second store in SoBro. Owners Lana and Jon Robb, who co-founded the restaurant six years ago, are renovating the building that formerly housed Sole Mio.
Copper Kettle will help bring critical mass to the expanding restaurant universe around Rutledge Hill, which recently added Andrew Chadwick's and Crema coffeehouse to the culinary mix. The new larger location will also house Copper Kettle's catering operation.
The Robbs will add garage doors to the building and extend the deck. They will also attempt to rusticize the interior to create a feel similar to that of the Lipscomb-area store. The new Copper Kettle will serve the same menu of Southern gourmet cuisine and will serve lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and Sunday brunch. Right now, the Robbs are considering opening on Saturday, as well as offering beer.
Located at 94 Peabody St., Copper Kettle is slated to open as early as mid-August.
