according to a neighbour who ran into one of the owners, the cafe is finished due to rent increase. the landlord asked for a 30% increase. clearly not affordable to a place that makes money from food, not alcohol. this is why ossington will be crowded with bars, moratorium or no moratorium - what other businesses can afford sky high rents? greedy landlords will make sure that business diversity disappears from every interesting block in this city.
this is a real loss, not just to the neighbourhood but to vegetarian food lovers. get real cafe made tasty fresh food, and provided a warm welcoming spot. i am a meat eater, but this was one of my most frequently visited lunch places, and a regular take out spot.
