It doesn’t look good for the little cafe that could. We just got this plea:
To whom it may concern:
The location at 2724 Greenville Avenue @ Vickery has been a neighborhood restaurant since 1972. The landlord of this historic building has decided NOT TO RENEW any leases at this location after over 70 years of business on the avenue. Their plan is to demolish the building and rebuild a bank in its place. We have until Dec. 31, 2005 at this location. John’s Cafe has been a place for good food, good friends and has added to the spirit and charm of the neighborhood. Its more than just a business, its a “home” to many who have been loyal customers throughout the years. Our future plans are to relocate to another location in the area if possible.
