Duo plan July opening for Luxe, a tiny cafe in the former Ella’s Supper Club

Tammi Mason and business partner Mary Walmsley expect to open Luxe coffee shop in the main floor of the old Oddgirls building on West Sprague in downtown Spokane.

They're setting up shop in the main floor of the former Ella's Supper Club, 1017 W. First. They expect to open in July. Mason also owns and manages the nearby hair styling salon Lush.

"We're moving into the former ticket sales area of Ella's," she said. It will be a snug 750 square feet in the coffee shop.

Ella's, a popular hangout and jazz club, operated in the building until 2008.

Mason said the coffee shop will get a license to serve beer and wine. Pastries will be provided by Spokane-based Petite Chat Bakery.

Manager Isaiah Crandall said he plans to serve microbrews and a good selection of regional wines. He estimated Luxe will have about 25 seats.
