Cafe Leopold gone?

  • 3

I saw a for rent sign in the window this morning while waiting for the streetcar. Too bad. I know they had closed for a couple of weeks but now it looks closed for good. Vannis next door says it's "re-opening". I live in the 'hood so it's depressing to see restaurants fail along that strip of St. Clair.

  1. I have no more details, but also noticed the sign with anguish yesterday. They had been closed for a while and had just reopened with a beautiful new bar...why do all that work and then close? Hopefully they're just moving to a better location that's not too far...

    1. Sad, I had some great duck confit there. Better than The Rushton.

        It was fabulous when it first opened, then the chef left and it was very disappointing from that point on. It was definitely better and cheaper than the Rushton in the early days.
