Fremont's Milstead & Co. Is Moving

The coffee shop's building is being torn down.

Don't freak out, Fremont: Your beloved Milstead & Co. is moving, temporarily, but not far. And they'll eventually be right back in their original location.

Here's the official word from shop owner Andrew Milstead, who says "Things will not change much at all for our lovely guests."

The building that we have called home for the last 4 years and change was built in the early 1910's and has been slated for some redevelopment. We have been working closely with all parties involved to ensure the continued operation of our little coffee shop during the entire process. Our temporary location is 100ft east of where we are now. The old Titan Electric building, just a stones throw away from us at 770, will be our temporary home while 770 is dismantled and rebuilt. Upon completion of the new structure, we will move our cafe back to sit atop the exact spot we have been these last few years, though with a few improvements.

With all construction projects, schedules tend to be a bit fluid and I can not say with any degree of certainty exactly when these changes will officially occur. I can say that our temporary location is well on its way and we hope to be working on finishing details soon. We will be sure to make the important announcements as we finalize schedules. I would encourage our guests to watch our twitter account, and feel free to ask questions to myself and the staff when in the cafe. We anticipate zero down time and will in fact be working to operate both locations simultaneously for a short while to ease the transition.

Milstead says the timeline for the temporary move (at 900 N 34th Street) is about six to eight weeks out.

Also moving is Cafe Turko, which shares the building with Milstead. Eater reported they're moving to a permanent location at 900 N 34th Street, so they'll temporarily share an address with Milstead.
