The Fresh Pot, an independent, Stumptown-servin' spot with cafes on Hawthorne and N. Mississippi, is expanding into downtown. Owner Matthew Vinci announced yesterday that Fresh Pot #3 will open in an already-existing coffee space downtown, taking over the SW Washington lease from Coffee Plant, which has been sitting pretty in the Morgan Building since 2003. The transition is expected to go down in mid-January, with a grand opening date tentatively scheduled for January 14.
