On the corner of Kinnickinnic in Bay View, sits a unique spot called Hi-Fi Cafe.

"We focus on art, music, and people and maybe that's why it's different," says Peter Steinhoff, co-owner of Hi-Fi.

Around since the 90s, Hi-Fi has stayed true to its rock vibe where customers can enjoy coffee, tea, shakes, and various meals throughout the day.

Closing at the start of the pandemic, since reopening Hi-Fi has only closed three days to serve customers.

"They know when this stuff goes it's not going to come back. If Hi-Fi goes, if other places go they probably aren't coming back," says Peter.

With the pandemic threatening to close its doors, Hi-Fi is asking the community for help. Setting up a GoFundMe page, Hi-Fi Cafe has been able to raise over $8,000.

Grateful for everything that has been done, Peter says Hi-Fi will stay open as long as it can.

"We will be here as long as they keep coming," says Peter.
