U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar’s “Minnesota Morning” event featured breakfast pastries from The Coffee Hag in Old Town Mankato.

Klobuchar has visited dozens of Minnesota communities in recent months and after tasting favorite local foods, she decided to showcase these Minnesota specialties at her weekly Thursday morning coffee gatherings in her Washington, D.C. office.

The Coffee Hag was purchased by owner Jenn Melby-Kelley in 2007 and has been a community gathering place in Old Town Mankato ever since. In 2016, The Coffee Hag was named U.S. Small Business Administration’s Minnesota Women-Owned Small Business of the Year.

Klobuchar hosts “Minnesota Morning” every Thursday when the Senate is in session and invites all Minnesotans who are visiting the capital.
