Co-op Creamery Renovation

Co-op Creamery Renovation

Renovation of the new Seward Co-op Creamery building at the corner of 26th Avenue and East Franklin is in high gear. Crews are adding a new elevator shaft on the east side of the building for the ADA accessible elevator. Staff have been busy relocating the Co-op’s administrative offices to the 2nd floor. The main floor will house the expanded meat and bakery production facilities, as well as a café along the Franklin Avenue side. The café, expected to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and possibly beer and wine, is expected to open in late summer of 2015.

Mosaic Café Closes

The end of September brought the unfortunate news of the closing of the Mosaic Café, located near Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue. In the words of their September 29 Facebook post: “Mosaic Cafe is now closed. To all present and past employees, thank you for all of your help and hard work. To our beloved guests, thank you for helping make Mosaic a part of your lives. We love you all!” For many, the feeling is mutual.
