Congratulations to Small Business of the Year Winner Colossal Cafe - Como

Owner Elizabeth Tinucci and Marcos Stoffel

Colossal Café has been a wonderful catering partner for the Midway Chamber as they have partnered with us on both monthly luncheons and economic development events. They have often waived delivery fees as event sponsors and have helped craft special custom menus. Colossal is one of our most popular Lunch on the Line locations, and they have continually been generous with gift cards and certificates for auctions.

Midway Chamber Coffee Club @ Yellowbird Coffee Bar

In the summer of 2019, St. Paul’s Lex-Ham (Lexington-Hamline) neighborhood welcomed Yellowbird Coffee Bar to their community. The shop is a testament to the power of genuine connections and a community’s dedication to supporting their neighbors. Reflective of local flair as locally sourced, Yellowbird’s menu is filled with unique flavors, offering a wide range of hot and cold espresso drinks, drip coffee, tea, sandwiches, soup, and pastries. A refreshingly moist banana chip muffin or a delectable chocolate croissant pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee.
