I don't hold out any hope that it will be temporary: look what happened to Cafe Richmond. I used to go there from time to time The city had required the new owners to leave some vestiges of the old place so I called in after the conversion to see what they had done. I only did it once for, who wants to go into a retail store to look at some old tables and chairs? It wouldn't surprise me if even that little corner gets swept away - if it hasn't been swept away already. And don't mention Cafe Retiro!This news is a true loss. What a special and unique place. I hope it’s only temporary.
