Soma Coffeehouse will open its third location this month due to increased business at its other locations.
The new location will open within the next month at 1815 E. 10th St.
“We’re hoping that this one will be bigger compared to our current east-side location, which is kind of small,” said Jared Arthur, a manager at Soma’s Third Street location.
The menu and items available will be the same as at the other two locations, but the new Soma will have more seating available for students to work, Arthur said.
“We’re not sure what type of vibe it will take on yet,” Arthur said. “We’re hoping that will become more clear once the new location opens up and customers start coming in.”
There is not yet a definite date for the new Soma opening, but it will most likely open within the next month, Arthur said.
The new café is opening because Soma has been doing well at both of its current locations and wants to expand to other parts of Bloomington.
“We just have been doing really well at both of our businesses and thought we’d expand to the north side of town,” Arthur said.
Soma currently has two other locations: one downtown on Kirkwood Avenue and one on the east side of Bloomington on Third Street.
