Insight Coffee and Sun & Soil Juice Company are now open at 16 Powerhouse, a new development at 16th & P Streets.
Joining the cafe soon will be Magpie Cafe, which will move from its current R Street location several blocks away, and Orchid Thai, the second outpost for a Lincoln-based Thai Restaurant.
Insight's 16 Powerhouse location, which they are calling the Fremont Cafe, is the fourth outpost for the local coffee chain, in addition to their original location at 8th & S, and their Capitol and Pavilions Cafe spots.
Insight Coffee and Magpie Cafe have been hit by protests by the local carpenters union over the labor practices of the developer of 16 Powerhouse. Even though the restaurants had no control over the developer and its contractors, the union continued to protest the small businesses for months.
Insight Coffee's Fremont Cafe will be open initially from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. It is located at 1615 16th St., and can be found online at http://www.insightcoffee.com/.
