After being closed since January, Abyssinia Market and Coffee House will reopen on Saturday (May 13) in Old Town, owner Lily Damtew recently announced on Facebook.

“I’m very happy to announce that we’ll be reopening the coffee shop this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.” she wrote on Facebook. “All beer and wines are on sale everything must go. Thank you for all the love and support you showed us, we hope to see you on Saturday!”

Damtew wrote on Facebook that the shop will be closed on Sundays, and that regular store hours will be posted on the door.

The Ethiopian coffee shop closed in January. The closure was due to health and other issues, Damtew wrote on a Go Fund Me that launched in March. So far, $3,845 has been raised.

The coffee shop made headlines during the pandemic in 2020 after an unruly customer refused to wear a face mask. A separate Go Fund Me set up for the coffee shop that year raised more than $21,000.
