YES! Blackwater is open!

To follow up on this

The new and improved Blackwater is open!

The paint is still wet, but things are coming together quite nicely. There is talk about creating a small meeting room in the back and putting a coffee bar in the window. Following the mantra: small small small - Rachel and her crew have carved out a very focused and manageable cafe.

Good job Rachel!

For those who may not know where the new Black Water is: Map

Stopped in this afternoon to check out the new digs-- teensy tiny for sure, but there's that nice open window platform (is that where the coffee bar might go?) and my plain-old-latte was as delicious as ever. I was happy to hear the barista say that about 90% of the people she served today were regulars from the old spot.

I'll definitely keep up my regular patronage... but the limited space may relegate it to a "grab and go" kind of place, instead of a "sit and chat."

you mean the sit all day and drink drip all day lurkers?

Was probibly a good business move to keep traffic in and out, much more profitable

I'm with by Emilie has one foot on the shore. The new space is cool, but I'll miss the old space and the ability hang out for a while with my laptop without feeling like I'm getting in the way. Hanging out for awhile in a coffee shop, of all places, does not qualify as "lurking."
