The second location of Japanese-inspired cafe Sa-Ten Coffee and Eats is now open at 4917 Airport Boulevard, the former home of sushi spot Kome (which relocated just a few blocks over).
For now, the Hyde Park edition of Sa-Ten is open with limited hours and menu, but all the espresso. Its current hours are from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The full menu will debut later this week on Thursday, February 1.
Sa-Ten is known for its toasts topped with kewpie mayonnaise eggs, smoked salmon, fried seaweed, mozzarella cheese, and anchovy garlic oil. Then there are lunch bowls, sandwiches, salads, and entrees like chicken katsu, teriyaki, and sides such as chilantro tofu, kimchi, and chicken karaage.
Designer Kazuya Owada helped change the original Kome space (which he worked on) by including a new coffee bar and turning the private dining room into a tatami room.
Kayo Asazu (who co-owns Kome) and Motoyasu Utsunomiya opened the first Sa-Ten on in Govalle on Springdale Road in September 2014. Kome, which originally opened in fall 2011, moved into its larger home on Airport Boulevard last November.
