With an expanded menu that includes beer and hot meals, the recently-opened Burgie’s Coffee at 3701 Stange Road is already seeing a steady flow of customers.

Longtime Ames coffee business Burgie’s Coffee & Tea Company opened the Somerset location, Burgie’s North — its first standalone location — on July 19, with a drive-thru window, patio tables and a variety of indoor seating. The shop is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“One of the challenges was incorporating the drive-thru,” designer Casee Burgason said. “We wanted to be able to offer fresh eggs and things like that. We haven’t really seen that done before where there’s a flattop grill with express, fast delivery through the window.”

Andrew Burgason, who manages Burgie’s North, said, “It’s always been important for us with our family business to do food well. But we also recognize that quick service is really important too. Casee did a really good job of giving us the space we need to make that happen.”

Burgie's North offers a selection of coffee, tea, cold drinks and beer along with hot sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, salads and desserts.

The menu includes several hot breakfast items like Pesto Egg, an egg on sourdough toast with pesto, ricotta cheese, chili flakes and local honey; Country Grind, a house-made biscuit, egg, pepper bacon, provolone, spinach and chipotle aioli; and Sunrise Melt, chicken sausage on an English muffin with provolone, roasted red pepper, egg white, spinach and mayo.

For lunch, served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., customers can choose from a variety of items, including Grilled Cheese, with cream cheese, cheddar and provolone; Pulled Pork, house-smoked pulled pork from sister store The Filling Station on a challah bun with dill pickles and sweet BBQ sauce; and a House Salad with chicken, romaine, grape tomatoes, parmesan, chickpeas, croutons and Caesar dressing.
