Sunna Juice Bar & Cafe closed; Greenville expansion planned
Sunna Juice Bar & Cafe, Brew Ha Ha’s more Zen restaurant cousin, has closed after less than six months.
The restaurant at 1420 N. Dupont Street, just didn’t work, owner Alisa Morkides said. “We’re moving on,” she said. “We’re sorry that it didn’t work out at Sunna. We’re taking this as a learning experience for us to be better. We’re very excited about the future.
Brew Ha Ha! Expresso & Newsstand at 3842 Kennett Pike in Greenville will grow from 1,800 square feet to about 3,000 by mid-2016, she said. Morkides, who is applying for a liquor license for the space, describes the new design as “a coffee bar on steroids.”
Offerings will include small plates, coffee cocktails, new brewing methods and full weekend brunches.
Since May, Morkides ran restaurants bookending the L-shaped Rockford Shops in Trolley Square. Her lines-out-the-door-popular Brew Ha Ha Roastery opened in April there. In addition to serving fresh-roasted coffee at Brew Ha Ha locations, Morkides said she has garnered some wholesale clients for the coffee beans.
“We’d like to incorporate what we learned at Sunna in our other locations, because the food, we thought, was really good,” she said.
