3 men seek OK to open coffeehouse

Annapolis, long known for its upscale pubs, appears to be on the verge of joining the bohemian cafe culture of the '90s.

The City Council will hold a public hearing at 7:30 tonight on an application by three men to open a coffeehouse at Prince George and Randall streets.

If the plans are approved, Annapolis residents could soon attend poetry readings while sipping espressos. The owners also plan to have recitals on acoustical instruments.

Other items on the agenda before the council include a bill to exclude restaurants making minor modifications from the city's drawn-out conditional-use process.

The issue came up when Jerry Hardesty, owner of Middleton Tavern, proposed slightly enlarging the upstairs kitchen while repairing the roof. He abandoned the proposal after trying to exempt himself from conditions that included installing a brick sidewalk in front of the tavern.
