I recently had a very nice lunch at a local antique store/cafe near me. When I shared my pleasure with the server, she let me know that there was a good chance the place would close in January. My heart sank.
I had a delicious lunch (sandwich, soup, heavenly marionberry scone with cream, well-made English Breakfast loose tea and milk and sugar). I was excited about making this a regular thing. It's very close to where I live. I don't know the drivers for the closure, could be a victim of the economy...could be the owner has inspiring plans elsewhere. Selfishly, I hope it stays open, but I know that my desires might not be for the greater good. Nonetheless, I can hope and enjoy it while it's here!
