Ashvegas update: More details on new West Asheville coffee shop

“Ashvegas” (aka Jason Sandford) reported on Jan. 9 that a new coffee café is coming to 800 Haywood Road in West Asheville: Odds Cafe. The building is next to the former Digable Pizza (and that spot’s under renovation). This week, Ashvegas provides an update on café owner Audrie Blomquist’s plans:

Audrie, whose nickname has always been Aud (which sounds like “Odd,” and thus perfect for Asheville) is the former marketing director for Earth Fare. She told me Tuesday that as a college art student, she found her home-away-from-home in a coffee shop, and it’s an atmosphere she’s always wanted to recreate. … “Our goal is to create something that has more of a coffee bar atmosphere, so you can hang out at night. We might have a couple of beers, but it will be an after-dinner place. We just want the best coffee and the best food,” she said.
