Little City, you will be missed!

tim irvine May 3, 2011 08:27 PM

Little City is closing in a week or so. I have loved the place and the people for many years. I love the espresso the big old Rancilio knocks out, the great sandwiches, and the long lines with friendly chatter. Around the office I say, "Friends don't let friends drink ______." I take them to a LC and they are amazed at how much better it is. I take them the next day, when someone else is making the drinks, and again, they are shocked that it is still great but not identical. Imagine that!

South Congress has become SoCo. South Lamar has become SoLa. North Congress is becoming SoWhat. It is sad. At least we still have Marakesh to go with all of the chain sub shops. I guess I will work on my taste for Turkish coffee.
