The 'Muni' is gone. Long live ... Dunkin' Donuts

The Municipal Cafeteria was a Main Street landmark for decades. Located across the street from City Hall and the Hartford Public Library, it was an ideal spot for downtown workers -- and a treasure trove of old Hartford photographs, which lined the walls. Unfortunately, it also became rundown in its later years; letting rock bands perform there at night didn't help the decor either. Finally, the Muni closed. Now a Dunkin' Donuts is preparing to open in that space. Say what you want about chain operations, but the place looks cleaner than it has in many years. And it's one less vacant storefront.
