As density rule goes into effect, Arthur Ave. restaurant continues to thrive

Posted: Updated:

Many people are afraid to eat out and socialize because of coronavirus fears, but that's not the case at Prince Coffee House.

The area has seen an increase of Albanian residents over the years and says it's in their culture to drink coffee at any time of the day or night.

 

"There's no virus that could stop Albanians, trust me. This is Albanian coffee, so they always come even in the snow or anything," said employee Florian Lota.

Not all of Arthur Avenue is doing as well. Some bars and lounges were nearly empty Friday night.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, all venues including bars and restaurants are required to reduce their capacity by 50%. If they do not, they will be forced to close. It is unclear how that will be enforced.
