With a bus stop just feet away and a new north/south bike route ushering bikers along SE 52nd, Midpoint Food and Drink is making the most out of their busy location between Foster and Powell. Within the next couple weeks, newly-installed windows on the building’s west-facing side will be serving up breakfast items for those on the go—perhaps as they wait for their bus or while on their bike commute.
But not just for those on the go.
The new window will make ordering your food-to-go easier, sure. But the area along the west-facing wall will also soon make way for picnic benches and a new outdoor dining area. Think ‘Waffle Window’ meets ‘street seats’ meets funky sidewalk patio, but with a uniquely FoPo vibe. And yes, on SE 52nd, so you get a view of the 14 bus-line, the neighborhood liquor store, and the poor saps who thought Subway Sandwiches (down the street) would be a better option than Midpoint. Like I said, uniquely FoPo.
Kudos to the owners for expanding business, getting creative, and bringing more life and vibrancy to the street. And if you don’t know, they serve up some good eats.
