Fairview Coffee Bar & Grub (3428 N. St. Mary's St., 210-731-8009) opened its doors on Monday. The barista-owned joint also serves as a nano-roaster and baking lab and will feature breakfast (vanilla bean waffles with either blueberry lemon or strawberry balsamic compote), lunch and coffee to the Riverside neighborhood.

A little fire couldn't keep deter the staff of Cappy's (5011 Broadway, 210-828-9669). After closing its doors on June 9 due to an early morning scorchaer, the restaurant has reopened with its previous menu and hours. The only slight modification to the schedule is that it will close for the next two Mondays for more maintenance. Sister bar-turned-restaurant Cappycino's will reopen in September with a new look and new gear in the kitchen.

Those looking for variety can find it at Opa's Edelweiss Café (1025 Donaldson Ave., 210-607-6727), which opened this summer with traditional schnitzel, oodles of sauerkraut and breakfast offerings. Definitely worth keeping in mind next time you're in line at Pancake Joe's.

Cibolo/Schertz residents should keep an eye out for the opening of the Old Main Ice House (110 N. Main St., Cibolo, 210-417-7217). The bar/food truck park will use 10,000 square-feet of outdoor space along with a full bar inside a renovated 90-year-old building. Owner Nick Marquez hopes to open the spot within the next three weeks.

Say.She.Ate's chef, Brandon McKelvey is the next up in Rosella Coffee Co.'s (203 E. Jones Ave., Suite 101, 210-277-8574) Pop'N'Plates. You'll get a chance to sample the chef's menu starting at 4 p.m. daily through Saturday. Expect to find the truck's signature Akaushi sliders, grilled cheese served on Bakery Lorraine's Pullman bread, Akaushi beef tartare, bacon-wrapped, stuffed Medjool dates, garlicky escargot spinach dip and a chili-lime rice noodle salad.

Culinaria will wrap up its expanded Restaurant Week this Saturday. Make sure to squeeze in another three-course lunch or dinner while you still can.

And finally, the cocktail community raised several toasts this weekend in Sasha Petraske's honor. The lauded cocktailian and consultant — who helped create the Bohanan's Bar program, served as co-founder for the San Antonio Cocktail Conference, helped launch the careers of several bartenders he personally trained at the downtown spot and turned San Antonio onto craft cocktails — passed away in New York. He was 42.
