3. Uprooted at Stumptown Coffee on 8th
With a name like Stumptown, you’d expect the cafe couldn’t be so easily uprooted at their location on 8th and Los Angeles. However, what COVID 19 didn’t uproot, a night of riots followed by a month of protesting most certainly did. Stumptown Cafe windows have been bordered up for weeks as DTLA awaits word on a possible reopening date.
For smaller cafes in the region with roots that run a bit deeper, the closing of Stumptown wasn’t entirely a bad cup, many sighting the pressure to keep up profits since the more popular brand moved in.
For Stumptown lovers, your luck hasn’t entirely run out. There are still two other locations and DTLA can always order online. They are now offering Stumptown Coffee subscriptions last we checked. www.stumptowncoffee.com
