Does anybody know what happened to this great little café on Bathurst north of Bloor? It seems to have vanished without a trace some time during the start of Summer 2006.

    Wow seriously. I loved this place. Whatever happened?

    One day it was open, everything seemingly normal: serving their coffee drinks, vast assortment of sweet goodies, tasty pressed sandwiches. I especially loved their decor; it was all warmly neutral brown, tan and black, just dark enough to be cozy but bright enough to read your book.

    Next day the shop was closed, the windows were taped up inside with garbage bags, and I maybe recall seeing a sign apologizing for the inconvenience. The next day, the sign was gone, the garbage bags remained and that is how it has been for months now. No explanation.

    I guess this happens all the time, but it's especially shocking when it's your favourite coffee shop in the neighb and there was no sign of any trouble. It would be great if someone could shed some light on why it suddenly closed. For a few months I kept hoping it would come back -- but I've given up the vigil now. :)
