The advertisers

And in some cases, government grants. But mostly advertisers. That is the major source of funding at present. Subscribers pay an extremely small percentage of the money it takes to run the business.
I don't know how much longer reliable internet news sources will be free, though. People who are willing to pay for a reputable newspaper are generally willing to pay for the same service online. There may come a time when newspapers will be considered a waste of natural resources (all that paper! all those trees!) and the only way a person will be able to get their news is on TV, radio, or online.

Friend and i planning on opening a cafe

Probably on the other side of the country. but like old school sf style. homey, books, art, coffee, food, small "stage" in the rear for readings and music... you know the drill.
very daunting task ahead of us, but it's been a dream of both of ours. any advice would be appreciated. we're currently brainstorming a list of everything we can think of that we'll need (input here would be awesome from those with experience!), then we'll compile estimated costs for startup and running, get together a business plan and seek out funding (grants, loans, etc) and possibly partners (two of us plus our SO's so far)
