Beaumont Market's Kombucha Bar

Kombucha Baby

Beaumont Market has undergone an extreme makeover. General Manager Gerald Garr has revamped the inventory to showcase organic, non-GMO and vegan foods. (But don't worry, you can still get a bag of Doritos if the urge hits!) Check out the fancy new Kombucha Bar with seven Townshend's tea varieties on tap. So fill up that growler; live long and prosper.

Get Toasted

There is more to Prince Coffee than Proud Mary and Stroopwafels. Power up your day with some Tabor Toast topped with white bean spread, micro greens, pickled onions and a sprinkling of sumac. Also new to the breakfast menu: Soaked Oats, Chia Pudding and Coconut Granola. Whatcha waiting for?

NEIGHBORHOOD SPOTLIGHT

Just Your Average Bob

Everybody may love Raymond, but in Beaumont, everybody loves Bob. You recognize him by his duster and cowboy hat, selling the Street Roots newspaper in front of Grand Central Bakery. Bob Egan, 49, grew up in the Mt. Tabor area and has been hawking the paper for 9 years. Chances are, if you live in Beaumont, Bob knows you by name. He will even shout across the street to greet you. Locals exchange handshakes, high-fives and even hugs with Bob; stopping for a few minutes to chat, even if they don’t buy a paper. Bob said he is a cook by trade. This summer he hopes to make it to Soldotna, Alaska, to cook at a fishing lodge. His goal: to make enough money to "buy a boat, a smoker-grill like Matt has at Bottles, and a dog," he said. "Boxer is my favorite breed.” But if you know Bob, you already know all this. If not, say hello next time. And consider buying a paper.
