Circa Celeste Cafe now has morning hours.
Starting this week, the cafe at 619 Wisconsin Ave. is opening at 7 a.m. To offset the new hours, the one-man shop run by owner Ben Lehner is closing earlier at 7 p.m.
Lehner said the crowd wasn't there to support the late-night hours, at least during the week. He'll stay open until midnight on Saturdays.
"We're really looking forward to the summer," said Lehner, who opened Cafe Celeste last September.
Circa Celeste offers homemade bakery, soups, salads, hummus, a full array of coffee and tea, and a fruit and veggie juice bar.
