Happy Thanksgiving!

We are, as always, so thankful for our customers. Every day, you folks put a smile on our face and make us feel loved and appreciated. We hope you feel the same way about us.

We will be closing tomorrow, Wednesday the 23rd at 4pm, and following the University's schedule we won't be open again until Monday, the 28th, at 7am, our normal time. Enjoy your time home with your families or your time with new friends. No matter what, know that someone is thankful for you.

A Warm Welcome: Winter Clothing Drive

Did you know that every year, from more than 20 countries, 4,000 refugees arrive and resettle to Minnesota?

This fall Bordertown is partnering with Arrive Ministries, a local non-profit organization that seeks to address the unique needs of refugees and immigrants in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota, and YOU, our customers, to help provide warm winter outerwear for those arriving in our chilly state!

Between now and Thanksgiving, drop off the following items at Bordertown: Warm Coats, Hats, Mittens, Gloves, Scarves, Warm Socks, Snow Pants, and Snow Boots

You get 10% of your order and you get to help someone new to our winter wonderland!

Donuts!

Today we are thrilled to offer our first ever donut for sale, The Elvis.


It's a baked from scratch banana donut with a creamy layer of peanut butter frosting that is topped with savory bacon. More baked donuts will be rolling out over the next few weeks so check back here for more news!

Spring Break!

Hey folks! If you couldn't tell by the lack os students on campus or the prediction of a snowstorm, it's Spring Break time again! That means we close a little earlier than normal but you can still stop in, chat up your favorite barista and get coffee or baked goods Monday-Friday, 7am-5pm this week!

Winter Break Hours!

It's that time of year again, when students go home for a few weeks and the wrath of winter flies into town! We are going to our normal winter break hours: 

Open: Mon-Fri 7am-5pm 

Closed Weekends & Holidays

 

From Fall to Winter!

Wow, time flies around here!  We are so happy to have all the students and staff back, it's been a busy fall around here and it's always amazing to see how many of you make us a part of your day!

 

Our Fall through Spring hours are: Mon-Thu 7am-10pm and Friday 7am-8pm. 

 

There's lots happening so keep an eye on our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/bordertowncoffee for events and specials! 

 

Remember, it's getting colder outside but it's nice and cozy in our living room! 

Summer has arrived!

And it has brought with it a new website! We are happy to have finally moved our website to Squarespace and are in the process of putting together our new site. Currently there are finished parts and... less finished parts as we figure out what is important to have online and what makes the customer experience easier! As always you can check out our facebook page for the most up to the minute news, make sure to "like" the page to keep up to date!

A couple summer related updates:

  1. Our summer hours are in effect! This means we are open from 7am-5pm Monday -Thursday and 7am-3pm on Friday. While we hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone, it's necessary during what are our slowest months. 
  2. Library room reservations. As always every semester we wipe our calendar, so if your group wants to reserve the library room for the summer let us know! It does tend to be quieter than during the school year so if you want to have a spur of the moment meeting, chances are good we can get you in!
  3. Lunch/breakfast orders. We tend to get more groups who want to do lunch or breakfast here in our library room during the summer, when you call to reserve the space please let us know if you want to put an order in for food. Since we make a smaller amount of food during the summer it's the safest way to guarantee we have enough of what you want!

We hope everyone has an amazing summer and we can't wait to see all of our friends return in the fall and make some new ones!
