NEWPORT NEWS—The spot left vacant by Aroma’s at the fountains of City Center will soon be offering a new coffee shop experience. Cure Coffeehouse and Brasserie, which already has locations in Norfolk, Smithfield, and Portsmouth, will start to make renovations to the space as soon as some maintenance issues can be resolved.

Offering a full selection of coffees and teas—as well as breakfast and lunch sandwiches (including bagels, superfood tacos, and a granola parfait), and cocktails, craft beers and wine, Cure has been planning to expand for some time, but was slowed by the pandemic and supply chain and staffing shortages. No official opening date for the Newport News location has been released yet.

Founded by high school friends and co-owners, Chris Shelton and Mike Aston, Cure got its start in Norfolk in February 2011. The Smithfield location opened in 2017, and the Portsmouth location will be opening soon. The Newport News location is not expected to be the last phase of their expansion plans.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
