In downtown Cloquet, The Avenue Coffeehouse — which has three employees in addition to co-owners Brookman and Mandee Carlson — has been recognized by Carlton County as being breastfeeding-friendly.
The space upstairs rented from Arise Church was rented to make the “cry room” available to nursing moms whether they are customers or employees. Moms are welcome to breastfeed while drinking a latte in the coffeehouse itself, the store manager said, but some prefer the quiet of the cry room.
They’ve also had moms use the space for breastpumping.
