Is Pupatella still around?

Yesterday my daughter and I planned to meet at Pupatella for a quick lunch, but sadly the cart was not there. Anyone know if it's still there generally or has it disappeared? We were so disappointed!

    They were on vacation last week and this - reopening on Friday 9/12. The website wasn't updated, but is now.

      Thanks for the update. I guess they're entitled to a vacation. :) I'm just happy to know the cart will still be there. Great food!

        Oh good, I was missing them for a few mornings!

          I tried one of the fresh made doughnuts this morning--strawberry. It was delicious. Fresh, hot, crispy on the outside, soft and doughy on the inside. I'm in trouble!

        That's odd - they do occasionally take a weekday off, but not usually Friday, since they get extra busy because of the Farmer's Market there in the courtyard.

        I was just there two weeks ago, and they didn't say anything about closing.

        It does look like their website is a week out of date, and they usually update daily:

          I'd really like to see them open in the evening now and then, or on Saturdays. I live nearby but work downtown, and I only ever get to eat that incredible pizza fresco on the odd weekday off.

            I've asked them before about this, and it's just not in the cards right now. They really need the evenings and weekends for prep work!
