Equal Grounds, a new coffee shop catering to the LGBT community will open soon inside the Montrose Center at 401 Branard. Project Q reports that the cafe’s creation was a “response to public feedback and part of a plan to continually grow and improve the center.”

The Montrose Center tells Project Q that people asked for a “public space where they could relax and visit before and after events and meetings,” so they found sources to fund a $25,000 build out for the project.

More information on hours and a grand opening will be announced soon.
