Our Brand New Sign!

After only two days of waiting, we got our new sign yesterday afternoon! We'd been working all day on the renovations so we might look a little rough, but the sign sure doesn't.

On the whole, the café is much more presentable now (but still needs lots of work). In the meantime, the Green Bean Café is, "coming soon". We'll see you on August 24th!
