FARGO-A new coffee shop is expected to open in mid-May in north Fargo, in the former home of Gloria Jean's Coffee.

Fargo Coffee will operate alongside the Little Caesars that opened last May at 1020 19th Ave. N. Both business are owned by local businessman Mike Stevens and his family.

Stevens said when they leased the space connected to the Holiday Station, they knew they didn't need the entire thing for the pizza store. When they thought about what else could go there, a coffee shop seemed like a natural fit.

"It seems like every day, someone walks into Little Caesars and says, 'Didn't this used to be Gloria Jean's?' It seemed to be a very popular coffee shop," he said.

Stevens said the space will operate as a mini food court, with an open flow between the Holiday convenience store, Fargo Coffee and Little Caesars.

The independent coffee shop will specialize in home-brewed, locally ground coffee and will offer a large selection of fresh-baked homemade doughnuts, Stevens said. It will offer seating, and the decor will have a retro, industrial design, he said.
