For Black Out Tuesday I was trying to shop all Black owned for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I searched far and wide for a coffee shop. Every shop I researched was closed, except 50/50...sort of. They are only able to sell beans until officially reopening.
Black and Latina owned 50/50 coffee house & pub is yet another small ABQ business struggling to open back up, thriving prior to Covid-19.
With current events many are looking to support small Black owned businesses, here’s your chance!
From 50/50’s website:
“When Amber, Carmen & Chad opened 50/50, we wanted some very specific things. We wanted an unpretentious place with really good food, organic fair-trade coffee and craft beer. We wanted an inclusive community space that almost feels like home; where children are welcome and our customers become extended family. We also knew that we wanted to support other small business people in our community. Through positive partnerships, we are achieving these goals as well as meeting the growing needs or our community. We host a variety of community-lead events, pop-up markets and a retail collaborative. 50/50 Coffee House and Pub... our space, your ideas.”
