Antiqua Cultural Coffee House has preserved the past while basking in the present. The business owner took a former ice cream parlor that had much of its architectural integrity intact and adapted it to the needs of a community that serves both a grade and middle school. The neighborhood received a much needed eating establishment and the schools acquired a place to gather. This endeavor was a challenging undertaking and is to be commended. The owners’ foresight has preserved the historic fabric of the building and at the same time serves hundreds of students and the residents of the surrounding area. The owner’s actions are to be praised and he is very well deserving of the 2009-2010 award.
