The Duluth Coffee Co.'s cafe in downtown Duluth is reopening April 20 after being closed for more than a year due to the pandemic.

A reopening event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 105 E. Superior St. The cafe will serve free cold brew and cappuccinos and host Mama Roots food bus; live music from Actual Wolf and Robin Hood Was Right; and a Stigma CBD pop-up shop.

Owner Eric Faust said he has about 300 sticks of sidewalk chalk so customers can decorate the street during the reopening celebration.

"We're a community hub," Faust said. "We're a place that is there for this community to come together, so we've waited a long time because we've been supporting our wholesale clients, but we're opening now because we're ready now to do it safely."
