Fabian's Cafe, 876 Markham Rd., Scarborough, is closed. I went by for a coffee at the beginning of March and there was a sign by the cash register letting people know that their last day at the current location would be March 28th. They were going be moving to a new location and if you wanted to add your name to the sign-up sheet, they'd be in touch once they knew where they were going to be.
My husband and I dropped by this afternoon, hoping to pick up a couple of strawberry tarts before they closed. There was a note on the door, dated March 5th, to say they've already gone, and that they don't have a new location yet but if you email them at firstname.lastname@example.org they'll add you to their contact list.
The new owners have started to rip up the inside; a lot of the banquette seating and the dividing wall between the cafe and the display cases have already been torn out.
Fabian's was a nice place that served a decent cup of coffee, a rarity in this part of town. Gerhard's is still at Bellamy & Ellesmere, but I preferred Fabian's and will miss it.
