Coffee shop adds art to menu

The coffee shop that claims to put the universe on University Avenue is coming down to Earth for an art show.

Mars Cafe will hold an art opening tonight featuring three local artists. The show will showcase the artists and their work, said Kari Heath, assistant manager for the cafe at 2318 University Ave.

"It's a young, hip group," said Heath, describing the artists.

Mars Cafe opened this spring just a stone's throw from Drake University. Every Friday, the coffee shop and wine bar holds a wine and beer tasting.

But every four to six weeks, the event also allows people to sample some art. Phil James, co-owner of the business, has said he's looking for events that will set Mars Cafe apart from other coffee shops.
