A cafe that also had a beer/wine license (especially popular in Southern Europe) might be able to generate enough customers to operate throughout the week. People could have a casual after work drink during the week, which could sustain the business until the majority of customers are able to come by for coffee on the weekend.

Part of getting the downtown going is realizing that we won't compete with Rt. 9, and that our best bet is locally owned, small scaled businesses--which fosters middle class jobs and higher incomes. So, entrepreneurs in entertainment (food) or retail could work for us. Real estate values aren't super expensive here yet, so there is a lot of opportunity to bring jobs and business to town, in a variety of fields.

There was a bakery/cafe soon after I moved to town in the plaza where Hanto is now, but honestly, I don't think it was in the right space, and it left too soon. I'm not going to go buy a fancy coffee and then shop over at Family Dollar.

But a really nice coffee and donut shop, like Blackbird or even Flour in Boston, would be excellent for old downtown.

A better flow to the area with more restaurants and shops that are accessible by walking. It would be nice to be able to park the car and then walk to a variety of different local shops. Something similar to downtown Holliston or Hopkinton would be nice. I visit those two downtown areas regularly but would like to support to my own town.

Downtown Ashland needs more businesses / greater business variety!
