Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer, apparent hater of the letter G, is behind the venture.

Originally announced in late 2014 and slated for an early 2015 opening, Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Cafe will finally open in North Attleboro in April 2016, Vanyaland reports, citing the Sun Chronicle. Kramer — the drummer of Aerosmith — co-owns the venture with business partners Ron Mann and Frank Cimler. Ernie Boch, Jr. (of car dealership and donating-too-much-to-Donald-Trump fame) owns the land where the cafe is located (551B South Washington St.)

A press release from way back in December 2014 promised "a coffeehouse with rockstar edge," including dragon-bedecked signage (with illuminated eyes) and an "expertly backlit" glass case containing Kramer's full drum kit from a recent tour. Also at Rockin' & Roastin' Cafe: "undulating rock-and-roll images and memorabilia" on the ceiling, "plush" couches, and "legendary" concerts playing on screens. A new release sent last week reinforces these details.

The cafe will serve a variety of coffee-based drinks highlighting Kramer's, Mann's, and Cimler's Rockin' & Roastin' shade-grown, organic coffee brand, along with pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and, of course, branded merchandise.

The North Attleboro cafe may be the first of multiple locations. Kramer also recently opened a full restaurant at Sunday River in Newry, Maine: Rockin' and Roastin' Cafe and Restaurant — At the Mountain.
