A new coffee shop sprouted up in Meridian on Locust Grove near Fairview Ave.

Blok & Co. has opened near Fred Meyer with locally-brewed coffee and a selection of pastries.

Here’s how owners describe the joint:

“(An) unpretentious, welcome-to-everyone, peaceful, hope-filled, fun-loving community. A place for groundbreaking conversation and culture-shaping ideas. “

Blok features local coffee from Form & Function – which you might recognize if you shop the smaller downtown market (the parking lot one).
