Della Costa Opens Farnam Street Coffee Bar

Midtown Crossing’s Della Costa ( is enhancing its footprint in the neighborhood with the opening of a new coffee and pastry bar, Café Costa.

Located in the Farnam entrance of Della Costa, Café Costa features local coffees by A Hill of Beans Coffee Roasters as well as house-made pastries, including cookies, scones and croissants, from in-house baker Mandy Vorthmann. Iced tea drinks and smoothies complement typical coffee selections, and homemade ice cream is for sale by the pint.

Café Costa is designed to be an extension of Della Costa’s Mediterranean-concept with a comfortable, relaxed feel.

“The area is now fitted with comfortable nooks to hide as well as traditional cafe seating and midcentury couches to relax on,” says Justin Halbert, who co-owns Della Costa and Café Costa with his brother Aaron and their uncle Ron Samuelson.

Café Costa officially opened on May 3 at 220 S. 31st Ave., Suite 3103. Regular business hours are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The owners plan to eventually phase-in breakfast items, including egg sandwiches and crepes, grab-and-go lunch options and more.

Café Costa’s parent concept, seafood inspired Della Costa, opened one year ago and features regional dishes from the coasts of Italy, France, Spain, Morocco and Greece. To make a reservation, visit
