Vespa-themed coffee house & restaurant

Martin Van Der Werf of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting St. Louis may have a new Vespa-themed coffee house/restaurant on Washington Avenue:
Tentatively called Vespresso, the shop may open as early as November on the ground floor of the Paristyle Loft building at 1517 Washington. It will be a collaboration of Stephen Zompa, who owns Vespa St. Louis, the area's only scooter dealership on Delmar, and his sister, Melissa Giovanna Cassilly, who is married to City Museum owner Bob Cassilly.
Sounds like this new venture could be a great new hang out for us scooter enthusiests. We'll just need to get the city to convert a car parking space to multiple scooter spaces!
