Bean's Cafe in Anchorage celebrated its new bathrooms with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday.

The cafe sent out an announcement saying the men's and women's bathrooms have been entirely remodeled to meet commercial-grade quality.

In addition, the cafe has a new ventilation system, epoxy floor, motion-sensor bathroom fixtures, as well as a urinal. The easy-to-clean fixtures help make the bathrooms sanitary and creates a healthy space for people who use the services at Bean's Cafe.

Remodeling costs were made possible thanks to the Rasmuson Foundation, Richard L Diana M Block Foundation, with some support from Cornerstone General Contractors and KPB Architects. 

Folks came out to attend the ceremony at the cafe located at 1020 E. 4th Ave. on Sept. 3 at 11 a.m.

Bean's Cafe has been a staple in the community since February 1979, where the hungry and homeless can get hot meals, a warm place to sleep and dry shelter.

They also provide resources as well as referral assistance to health and human service programs.
