Since Kim is just getting used to running his own shop, it’s all about taking things slow and doing them right. Being a new spot in an area not used to specialty coffee “keeps me on my toes to keep my standards as high as possible,” he says. He hopes to start a lunch program offering grilled cheese and soup, and develop more coffee specials like the house-made butterscotch latte that’s available now. Small-batch ice cream is also a possibility, which would allow the addition of affogato to the menu. But one of the more exciting ways Highlight is setting itself up to succeed is simply by staying open till 9 p.m., in an area where most other businesses close earlier. Glendale is not only finally getting good coffee, but also a place to meet up and hang out.
