The Bywater's best spot for coffee, breakfast and lunch, Satsuma Café, announced back in May that owners Peter and Cassi Dymond were planning to open a second location uptown. Now, via the café's Facebook page, comes a target opening date: The uptown Satsuma is due to open August 15. This location is at the corner of Maple and Fern in the space that was, most recently, Aux Folies Riverluna.
The chef there is Michael Constantini, who ran Satsuma's short-lived dinner service. No word yet if this means that the uptown location will do dinner, though Constantini's return?combined with the fact that this space has a larger kitchen the downtown one?certainly suggests it might.
