Lima, OH – The Meeting Place on Market in downtown Lima announces their new hours of operation beginning Tuesday, September 6th. “We are here because we want to improve the economic environment in downtown Lima .” says owner Greg Stover. “For the fall and winter months we determined that our walk-in traffic falls off a great deal after the lunch crowd.”
New hours of business for the Meeting Place are as follows:
Monday – Friday: Open at 7:30 am. Full kitchen services will remain open until 2:00 pm. Front counter service will be open until 5:30 pm.
Saturday: Open at 9:00 am. Full kitchen and front counter services will remain open until 3:00 pm.
The Meeting Place front counter offers 101 signature hot and cold espresso and chai drinks, gourmet coffee and hot chocolate, smoothies, mega-cookies, baked items, cheesecakes and desserts and front cooler items, plus our homemade soups. “Our goal is to maximize our productivity during our prime hours,” said co-owner Jennifer Brogee. “We will be open evenings for special scheduled events, concerts, and private meetings. During concerts and public events our front counter will remain open,” continued Brogee.

“We want to also remind customers that our meeting room is available for rent both during and after hours. We have several ongoing events in our store and will continue to support those”, according to Greg Stover.
The Meeting Place on Market opened its doors in 2003. In addition to serving fresh, homemade drinks, sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts, a Bakery (baker Mary Weis) was added to enlarge the baked items offered for sale including gluten and sugar-free options. The locally owned restaurant promotes and supports local talent, artwork, and downtown Lima organizations, including the Heart of Lima Neighborhood Association.
