A new coffee shop is finally opening in the former Golden Fog space in the Las Vegas Arts District. Dig It Coffee Co. began as a vocational training program through the Las Vegas-based nonprofit organization, the Garden Foundation. Inspired by her younger sister who was born with Down syndrome, owner Taylor Gardner Chaney founded the organization which serves adults living with disabilities. In a statement, Cheney says that the mission of the coffee shop is to promote inclusivity by providing job opportunities for people with disabilities. Dig It got its start hosting pop-ups at farmers’ markets and the downtown opening marks its first brick-and-mortar location.
The menu at the coffee shop at the ShareDowntown apartment complex includes fun drinks like peanut butter matcha, gummy bear lemonade, and pressed juices — as well as traditional coffee shop beverages. Its menu will offer various snacks and light bites from local businesses. The 1,400-square-foot space is decorated with bright colors and disco balls, with accessible low-top seating for people who use wheelchairs. Dig It Coffee Co. will be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and will hold a grand opening celebration on Saturday, September 24 at 10 a.m.
