Owner Leonel Rodriguez didn’t expect to serve his last cup of cafe de olla at Step Down Cafe in March.

As a community hub, Pilsenites relied on Step Down as a place for freelancers to work, neighbors to meet and workers to grab a cup of coffee before starting their day. In-person service was much of the coffee shop’s business. The months-long coronavirus shutdown was the death...

Numerous cars drive through the historic street while customers pick up orders from restaurants and visit quinceañera shops or...
