Nippertown mourned the loss of the much beloved the Bread & Jam Cafe in Cohoes when owner Salvatore Prizio decided to shutter the doors for good in September 2010.
And while Prizio continued to do good things music-wise around town (having moved on to the Massry Center at the College of Saint Rose in Albany), there was an empty spot in Cohoes … until now.
Yes, the site of the former Bread & Jam Cafe is up and running once again as a cafe… with live music, too. And the name? More Bread & Jam.
The father and daughter team of co-owners Steve and Brooke Kolcow first opened the doors of the family-run operation back in August, and now they’re gearing up for their official grand opening this weekend with country-and-blues roots combo Red Haired Strangers playing at 7pm on Friday (October 5), followed by singer-songwriter Molly Durnin at 7pm on Saturday (October 6).
Congrats and best wishes to the Kolcows on their new venture. Stop by and enjoy some coffee and breakfast. Or a wrap and some music.
