Another Victim of the Economy
Vega's Cafe in the northwest part of the city didn't make it through this economy.
It had been in town since the 1970's in some form or the other: Vega's in Hyde Park Area, El Calderon on North Decatur, and Vega's Cafe on Tenaya/Azure.
Too bad. I meant to try that place, but never got around to it. However, it's no surprise, as that particular strip mall (Tenaya/Azure) is probably well over half-empty at this point. I just hope Capriotti's holds out, as it's the closest one to where we live. I was sorry to see the kitchen supply store close last year.
As for the pizza place in the same strip mall, well, it deserved to go, IMO. I gave them three chances, and they managed to screw up a very simple order, each time. The overpriced gelato shop was no loss either.
