845 Monmouth Street

The series of buildings at 845 Monmouth Street in Newport, Kentucky is home to Carabello Coffee. Previous uses included a National City Bank branch and a check cashing company.

The corner building at Monmouth and East 9th Street was originally home to an El Rico drugstore. It was faced with white stucco and adorned with a red tile roof. Banks later occupied the building, including National City. An adjoining complex consists of a circa 1900 one-story frame building and a circa 1900 three-story Italianate Second Empire building along East 9th Street between Monmouth and Dayton streets.

On November 10, 2014, Carabello Coffee announced that they were purchasing 845 Monmouth to expand operations. The expansion features additional seating for Carabello, a coffee bar, expanded roasting operations, and a training laboratory.

Did they keep anything of the old building? It looked like it had some very interesting architecture, and now its just gone.
