Downtown Dawson’s to get a new look

Dawson Taylor Downtown will undergo a renovation in coming months.

The popular 8th Street coffeehouse will get a $100,000 upgrade in coming months.

When Hayden Beverage purchased Dawson’s in 2017, company CEO Dodds Hayden teased the changes. He said the updates would be largely cosmetic.

“It’s not a hip glass and steel thing, but a homey really comfortable atmosphere,” Hayden said. “New floors, ceiling tiles, lights – all the surfaces just need to be redone. The brand is about the quality of coffee, the people and being a local roaster.”

Permits filed with the City of Boise echo Hayden’s 2017 comments. A new customer service counter will go in, plus a restroom remodel, new finishes and updated lighting.
