These days, it's not enough to get a great cup of Joe. For most of us, the setting is as important as what's in the cup. Matt Bourgeois and Missy Greis understand this. As the owners of Publik Coffee Roasters, they created a new location in Salt Lake City that satisfies our cravings for really tasty style.
Pastries and an assortment of toasts are among Publik's offerings.
A mix of raw, industrial and sleek materials shape the interior's cool, comfortable vibe.
Wire cage pendants hang above the boardroom table.
Stools overlook the stairway connecting the interior's two levels.
A Big Ass Fan from Kentucky measures 14 feet across and hangs above the open interior.
Faux boxwood clads the wall opening to the restrooms.
Recycled materials include snow fence from Wyoming, stem pipe from Duchesne County oil fields and metal doors from an old downtown warehouse.
Vintage fixtures elevate the interiors industrial, warehouse design. Publik (derived from Publiek meaning community or public in Dutch) defines the type of welcoming gathering place Matt and Missy wanted to create.
Chris Nielson of Evergreene Construction and architect Warren Lloyd of Lloyd Architects (photographed with Missy and Matt) tranformed the former printing press warehouse into Publik Coffee Roasters' new location on 975 S. West Temple. Whether you love great coffee or stirring architecture, you'll love this new addition to Salt Lake City.
