(Las Vegas) – Sambalatte, the award-winning coffee-sanctuary that has gained recognition as one of the valley’s premiere coffee restaurants, opened its second location in Las Vegas January 24, 2014. The new location will be in southwest Las Vegas, off Jones Road and the 215 freeway at 6555 S. Jones Blvd. A third Sambalatte restaurant is planned for Spring of 2014 within the new MGM Resorts International entertainment project, which is transforming the front facades of the Monte Carlo into an outdoor plaza experience featuring a series of casual bars, eateries and retail destinations. The two additional location openings will create approximately 40 new jobs.
The new Sambalatte store will feature familiar, delicious Sambalatte coffee, unique brewing techniques, savory foods, including new menu items such as Italian and Spanish cold tapas, a drive-thru window, and a grab-and-go open food case. In addition, the new location will have a spacious covered patio seating area with a fire pit, fireplace, flatscreen televisions and community lounging that will accommodate up to 60 guests, free Wi-Fi, available power sources and more. Known for being environmentally friendly, supporting local businesses and providing superior customer service, Sambalatte will continue to create a diverse social environment.
