When your friend says they re treating you to our place.

Hi everyone, Yes it s true. We will be closing our doors on August 31st. It has been an incredible 47 year run, but the time has come. When we opened in 1970 the Village was a different world. It was not cluttered with banks, pharmacy chains, upscale coffee shops, etc. It was era in time that we will always hold dear. Small jazz clubs, mom-and-pop stores, etc., peaceful and fun. We opened with a simple concept: to have a village coffee shop offering decent food at a reasonable price, with no pretense. We ve never pretended to be anything that we were not. But now the neighborhood is saturated with restaurants that come and go and keep re-opening as something new. For us to survive in this environment, we would have to surrender our original concept and upgrade to the current upscale scene but no...we are not interested ping up with the Jone To say this moment is bittersweet in an understatement. We are left with wonderful memories and the countless friends we have made, which we will hold dear to our hearts as we move on. We thank all of our patrons for their support over the decades past, and wish everyone the best. We will never forget you.​ -Steve and Mauricio
