There’ll soon be a new way to get a caffeine fix in Scott’s Addition.

Lamplighter Roasting Company is getting ready to open a new second location at 1719 Summit Ave. The 1,400 square foot coffee shop will replace the Kickstand, a tasting room Lamplighter has operated since January out of the Richmond Cycling Corp. building next door.

Lamplighter co-owner Noelle Archibald said the space should be up and running sometime early next year.

“We’ve been looking for a location for a new espresso and coffee bar for a while,” Archibald said. “Our cafe is so busy. It’s hard to have space for all the things we’d like to do.”

Lamplighter opened its first location about three years ago in the Fan area at 116 S. Addison St. The owners are working with Richmond developer Scott Coleman, whose company High Summit Holdings owns the property, to design and build out the new space.
