The return of a specialty café to Downtown Hazleton marks the latest in a long line of new businesses and cultural outlets that will open in the downtown in 2019.
Grateful Roast Coffee, a café featuring specialty coffees made with an in-house coffee roaster, will feature - along with its signature coffee, a menu that includes pastries, breakfast, and lunch items. The café is set to open in April in the former Dragonfly Café location at 9 East Broad Street.
The Hazleton cafe is the company’s second location, following the opening of the first Grateful Roast Coffee in Nanticoke three years ago. Owners Brian Williams and Sarah Kratz are planning a soft opening for April, followed by a grand opening in May. They expect the hours to be the same as the Nanticoke location: Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
