There is no proposed opening date yet, but city council has officially approved ” Element Coffee Bar and Lounge” to move into 516 Topsail Road. That address is the multi-storefront building behind Burger King on Topsail Rd.

This is more great news for townies not living downtown, who want something other than a cup of Tim’s available in their neighbourhoods. Topsail Road has been broadening its food and drink horizons lately, with spots like Freshii and O’Mi Sushi recently opening on Topsail Road as well.

Its owners will be serving alcoholic beverages as well, supposing their application for a liquor licence is approved. Element will employ four people. A more thorough article will follow closer to their opening date.
