The building where Cafe Utza is located opened 75 years ago to much fanfare. It was originally a shoe repair shop. In 1936, a new building of ANY kind was worthy of celebration and while it didn't quite get the fanfare of the Montana Theater, it was still featured in the newspaper. It had upholstered furniture for people to sit in while their shoes were repaired. How's that for uptown!
