Colectivo Reopens Prospect Avenue Cafe
Cafe has been closed since January, reopens with limited hours.
For the first time since January, you can grab a coffee at Colectivo on Prospect, 2211 N. Prospect Ave.
“We’re SO excited to be back and open for business. Please stop by and say hi,” said the company in Facebook and Instagram posts.
The cafe is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day.
Colectivo, which operates 12 cafes in the Milwaukee area, closed and opened a number of cafes during the pandemic. It closed its Historic Third Ward cafe in November, but reopened it in June. Others, including those in Riverwest and Wauwatosa, closed early in the pandemic, but reopened by April 2020 with mobile ordering, contactless pickup and curbside service.
The Bayshore Town Center cafe was closed in 2020 and has not reopened.
The cafe in the US Bank Center closed in November, but has yet to reopen. Its closure is billed as temporary and, unlike the Bayshore location, it still appears on the company’s website.
In the middle of the rolling closures, Colectivo encountered a contested unionization effort. After a tie vote in March, the National Labor Review Board ruled the unionization effort a success in August.
Colectivo also operates three cafes in Madison and five in Chicago.
