A popular coffee shop re-opens inside the Missoula County Courthouse, after major construction projects closed the shop for more than a year.
Courthouse employees and other community members frequented the conveniently located Liquid Planet for years before it shut down last fall.
Major construction projects relocated several departments inside the courthouse, and after months of equipment installs and preparation, Liquid Planet reopened this week.
Dan Palchak, a courthouse janitor, said, "For my coffee fix, I've been resorting to drip coffee at home, you know, it's no chai latte, no espresso fixes, now they're open!"
Liquid Planet has moved to the north side of the building on the first floor, adjacent to a main entrance.
The coffee shop is offering drinks and some food items, and will soon offer a variety of sandwiches.
