New café brings coffee, healthy drinks and eats to Kenmore

It’s a coffee shop. It’s a tea house. It’s a café and a gathering space.

Srina Tea House and Café is finally here on Kenmore Boulevard, and they’re inviting you to test their products and provide feedback during their soft opening, which will run Aug. 12, 4 to 6 p.m., through Sept. 16.

Eclectic and healthy food is on the menu, which was released to the public during the August Kenmore First Friday event. The menu includes quiches, Jerk chicken fingers, street corn, sorbet and, of course, Srina’s organic coffee and teas responsibly grown in the farms of Sri Lanka.

Srina also features a line of pastries that includes Summit Croissants made in Kenmore by Sally Ohle, plus avocado toast, bagels and lox. And you can enjoy your food and beverages either in the cool rainforest décor of the dining room or at Srina’s al fresco streetside tables.

In addition, Srina is partnering with the Jump on Board for Success (JOBS) program, a Kenmore-based culinary training program which gives young and at-risk women a head start in food service, as well as Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance to provide subsidies to employ the young women locally.

“I am looking forward to working with these organizations to make Kenmore one of the best places to visit, eat and shop in Akron,” said Srina owner Monaqui Porter-Young.

Srina Tea House is located at 975 Kenmore Blvd. Starting Aug 12, they will be open Sunday and Monday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. RSVP for their soft launch event.
