On Thursday, February 28th Cream & Amber will open its doors at 1605 Mainstreet in downtown Hopkins. The new and used bookstore will house a diverse selection of genres and authors designed to be a place for people to read and work over coffee and beer. Featuring rotating brews from Fulton, Enki, and Indeed among others, the space will also offer caffeinated confections from St. Paul’s Bootstrap Coffee Roasters and a tea section from Minneapolis’ Bingley’s Teas. When hunger strikes, guests can satiate cravings with Cream & Amber’s pannini, salads, and other light snack options.

“We have a love of reading, good beer and Minnesotan community,” explains Cream & Amber co-founder, Katie Terhune. “We saw an opportunity to strengthen the Hopkins community, which lacked a bookstore, by creating a space where you can grab a book in one hand and a dark roast, or stout, in the other.”

“We look forward to meeting more of our neighbors and building relationships in the days and weeks to come,” adds Terhune’s partner in the venture, Kacey Hruby Wyttenhove.

After the launch, book lovers can get their literary fill from 11 a.m to 9 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
