Without the fanfare of French Press a couple of businesses have quietly opened along Commercial St. in SE Salem. The first is a local coffee stand called Toaddaly Coffee in the parking lot of the new strip mall next to Papa de Vino. They've been open for at least a couple of weeks and their logo is of all things a toad. A google search of "toaddaly coffee" this morning, turned up nothing. The other opening is the Half Penny Bar and Grill located in the building which once housed the Sapphire lounge and before that the Oasis. I'm told their well known bartender has worked in Salem for awhile including a stint at Moonbaker. The Half Penny has been advertising $7 lunch specials on their sign out front. Might be worth checking out. Do you know of any other local opening happening around town? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
