Thomas Hammer to open South Hill location near Washington Trust branch

Thomas Hammer Coffee Roasters is opening a cafe on Spokane’s South Hill, continuing a partnership with Washington Trust Bank, according to permits issued by the city. The new location, 3173 S. Grand Blvd., is being built and will be owned by the bank and just south of the Washington Trust Manito branch opened in 2018. The 3,400-square-foot building will take the vacant lot on the corner of 32nd Avenue and Grand Boulevard. It will house a neighborhood community center and the coffee shop, according to a statement on the website of Baker Construction & Development Inc., the project’s contractor.
