Rhino Coffee downtown in the Lofts at 624 has extended their hours to 7 am- 6 pm every day! Owner Andrew Crawford tells us they have been short-handed and there has been some illness that has made for even longer hours for employees, so they decided to close their downtown store at 2 pm for a couple of weeks.

That was bad news for downtownies who need a burst of caffeine in the late afternoon and who love to have out-of-office meetings at Rhino.

It has been a tough 16 months in general for our small and local businesses and many are struggling to get back to some sense of ‘normalcy’ with staff and in their hours. Remember than Rhino isn’t just a cuppa joe. The eatery offers breakfast, lunch and snack options and a full menu for eat-in or catering office events or parties. Their extensive drink menu includes a variety of coffees, teas, sodas and beverages such as wine and coffees with liquor.
