This will be the fifth location for Prado Cafe. The coffee shop was launched in 2004, then taken over in 2011 by award-winning barista and passionate coffee expert Sammy Piccolo.

At the new location, Piccolo has said they will make food and treats in-house, serving up sandwiches and brunch dishes, as well as the to-be-expected coffee program, anchored by 49th Parallel beans.

Prado Cafe at 3 Civic Plaza is set to open on April 30.
