Dominga Pereverzoff is new owner of Dominga’s Cafe (the former Coffee Coop) on Eldorado Street in downtown Trail. She and friend Joe were chopping veggies for the soup du jour Tuesday

New owners for familiar place

Dominga's Café, formerly the Coffee Coop is open for business and will be launching their grand opening today.

A stroll through downtown Trail and a sign in a window has Dominga Pereverzoff donning an apron and a smile instead of putting up her feet and retiring.

The Trail resident is the chef-owner of Dominga’s Cafe, now open in the former Coffee Coop locale on Eldorado Street.

“I was planning to retire,” said Pereverzoff, a familiar face to local diners. “But when I walked by and saw the ‘For Sale’ sign, I said to my friend Joe, “let’s give her a call.””

Pereverzoff was a server at Raves Restaurant and Lounge in the Waneta Plaza until the business folded a few years ago and most recently, worked at a downtown eatery.

“When I was told the price, I said “I’ll take it,”” she chuckled. “Just like that.”

The Cafe has been open for a month, but will officially launch with a grand opening Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

That day, Pereverzoff is offering a tasting menu and invites customers to sample Manila-style sweet rice and speciality foods including noodles and egg rolls.

“It has been busy and I am really enjoying my customers,” she said.

“Everyone is welcome to drop by to meet me and enjoy a little treat.”

The Cafe’s daily menu includes home-style breakfasts, lunches and take-out, Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
