PASSING INSPECTIONS AND TESTING EQUIPMENT

This past week Convivial Cafe passed its electrical, plumbing, and health inspections. We very much appreciate all of the help that our contractors, architects, and employees gave us. Next week, we plan to have the few remaining inspections that we need before we can open for business.

In the meantime, we have been testing our equipment. Andy from Snohomish Bakery came out to help by working with our sheeter.

We also received our main work table for the bakers. It has a beautiful maple top. This will be where most of the breads, pastries, cookies, and cakes will be made.

We have also been testing our beverage equipment. While we love coffee, we also love tea and so have been enjoying making various teas from Smith Tea.
