Ladder Coffee and Toast, the Spokane coffee shop that got its start in a barista’s yard before opening a North Side drive-thru last November, is planning to move to Browne’s Addition this fall.

Owner Aaron Rivkin made the announcement on Instagram and Facebook on Monday, posting a photo of the new location. Ladder plans to move to 1516 W. Riverside Ave. in the beginning to middle of October, he said.

He and his wife, Katie, began holding Saturday morning coffee klatches at their home in Spokane’s Five Mile neighborhood last summer to start building buzz for a brick-and-mortar location.

Ladder serves coffee from specialty roasters around the region and rest of the country. Its drive-thru location is at 603 W. Hastings Road.
