The owners are Mel and Kimala Bond and their daughter Kathleen, a Belmont grad and entrepreneur who formerly worked as a manager at The Turnip Truck Urban Fare across the street.
Bond Coffee opened with limited hours at the end of last week, and now it's operating in full swing. In addition to coffee and espresso drinks, Bond serves pastries (including muffins made in house) and a smallish menu of sandwiches and panini. Some favorites, like the chicken salad, will always be on the menu, and a few options will rotate, according to Kathleen Bond, who oversees the food.
A fun, convenient breakfast item is grab-and-go oatmeal in Mason jars from locally based Haulin' Oats.
The remodeled interior is sleek and light. An iron chandelier with vintage-looking bulbs was going up Monday afternoon.
