Such sad news to share on a Friday morning. Mid City Caffe, which opened on my birthday in 2009, is closing on October 1st. Unfortunately, their lease is up for renewal and they decided not to continue. While their location was a bit out of the way, Mid City definitely had some loyal fans – me among them. Make sure to stop by for one last cup before they close next Saturday. They won’t be opening Mid City Caffe in another location. This is it.
And, this seems like a good time to mention that Mid City Caffe’s downstairs neighbor, Miss Pixies, might be in the same boat. Both of these stores make the U street/Logan Circle neighborhoods a better place to live, so I hope that we can continue to get these kinds of local independent businesses to move to the ‘hood.
