When did Casa close its doors? Looks like a nice shop.

I went to Casa on a few occasions when it was open in the space. Casa had one thing wrong I thought when I would go there - the acoustics. They didn't have anything on the ground or on the walls that absorbs any sound, just solid concrete. It was a difficult space to have a conversation, which is a major downer for that kind of space. If the new business can quiet that space down, I think they'll have a winner. Lakeside is missing a neighborhood joint like that.

Isn't it illegal to serve coffee in Lakeside?  Oh wait, that's beer...

I stopped in at Amity yesterday and again today. The coffee and hot chocolate are top drawer, the atmosphere is great, and the place was very busy. It was fun to see the mix -- older ladies, middle school girls, cool people. Also, the logo T-shirts are groovy. Going to get me one of those.

Isn't there a city ordnance against blocking a city sidewalk, like you do? When will you get all the junk off the sidewalk so customers can access the US Post Office? First taking up two parking spaces, with your car exhaust fumed outdoor ugly sitting area, in an area that parking is very limited to begin with, and now it's almost impossible to pass around your excuse for artistic landscape, to get to other businesses in the block.

Amity

Ben is apparently referring to the "parklet" outside Amity, which was installed by the Healthy Duluth Area Coalition in July and has city approval to be in use through October.

Why Ben uses the second-person narrative to refer to Amity Coffee on this website, and why he can't figure out how to navigate through simple objects on a sidewalk are questions I can't answer.

The "parklet" is now gone.  Been gone a week or two.  I was there this past Sunday, and had no problems walking the sidewalk and into the shop.  I will say I've been walking for close to 34 years, so maybe I'm considered an advanced walker?

Who self appointed the Healthy Duluth Coalition?  Can anyone name the members? How many times do each member average as customers of this establishment? How would you feel with installing simple objects, as  Mr. Lundgren, so eloquently put it above,  block your sidewalk, or even your Homes driveway, if you have one? Why not just make the whole north side of that block of Superior Street a "parklet" and then tell us how that is fair to the other businesses adjacent to Amity Coffee. I'm a current member of the Common Sense Duluth Coalition.

I love Amity Coffee! It's within walking distance of my house (though I mostly drive there on my way somewhere else), it has a great staff, lovely coffee, and I always see a familiar face there. I am grateful that there is such a quality spot in my neighborhood.

I know an internet argument over something that doesn't exist anymore is awfully fun, but I think I'm already to the point where I'll just acknowledge that Ben and I have different views about parklets and common sense.

Oh!...... Paul,,, How "profound"! What an authoritarian with words!   However, you failed to read my original comment points. I was not referring to the "parklet", or some other new word in Websters.  Must be humorous to  witness, your self appointed "Healthy" Duluth Coalition members sitting outside, listening to auto engine noise,  while inhaling  exhaust fumes,  sipping overpriced "lovely" coffee, and calling that a beautification project to Superior Street, and something that is an honest eyesore sidewalk obstruction. When parking to go to the Post office, I had to crawl over two  substantial boxes,  painted some example of green, that must be someones dream of flower planters. Please move to the alley, out of eyesight, less  obstruction,  saved us from from trendy objects.  This is not Cafe-DE-Pak on the sidewalk in front of the Willard Intercontinental in DC. Enough said.
