I stood in shock this morning (and in serious need of caffeine) when I wondered down the block to Kits Coffee only to see it all boarded up with a sign – closed for good!
I have long been a supporter of Kits Coffee mostly because it is super close to my home, independent and spacious enough for a stroller. In my opinion, the coffee, food, price point, atmosphere was, in a word, fine.
Kits Coffee appealed to those of us who just wanted something easy – no young men in $200 ironic tees and skinny jeans sipping $4 espresso to run over with children in tow, no long lines, no BS. That noted, with apartments above and a large parking lot in a very expensive postal code, there is no doubt that Kits Coffee was also located on a goldmine.
Nobody is answering the phones at Kits Coffee and the neighbours I spoke with are equally perplexed as to what will happen with the space. Do any readers have any leads?
