The Cup Café in Hotel Congress will be temporarily closed starting this Sunday, while its famous penny floors get a facelift.
Seems the Café floor was missing a little over a dollar and they are working with local coin shops to replace the missing copper with unique pennies to keep things interesting. The floor will also get a strip down and a polish to try to bring its luster as close to original as possible. During the week-long closure, they also plan on finishing some long-needed back-of-house repairs.
It's to reopen July 6; let's hope they don’t do too good of a job on the floor — no one wants to have to wear sunglasses for breakfast!
