Blogdowntown points out there's a "we're out of business" sign on the newly opened Cafe Cafe, a coffee/sandwich shop on 2nd and Broadway. Ironically, a "congrats on your grand opening" banner from Historic Downtown Retail Project also hangs on the door. Why'd it fail? We defer to the comment section of the blog:
"This place took the downtown market for granted. Yes, there are 20,000 new residents....But slapping together a half-ass strip-mallesque coffee shop does not guarantee patrons... And please, talk to someone before picking a name like Cafe Cafe."
We'll point out Pizza Pizza worked out just fine. (Photo courtesy of Blogdowntown.)
