Just saw the sad news on Universal Hub. I used to live on Brighton Ave about two blocks down from this well-loved alternative fave. I'm sure the hood will miss it.

    I live in Allston and consider this place the heart of Allston. I went there often including recently so don't always believe the haters. It will be hugely missed!

      Not so much a hater as someone who remembers what this place was 10-15 years ago. But unfortunately it hasn't been that place for a long, long time.

      You would think, but no. I don't know when you left the neighborhood, but Allston Cafe's decline has been precipitous and irreversible.

        Ah. Good to know. It has been a while since I lived there.
