In May of this year, Ned Berke, wrote about Cappuccino on the Bay at 3031 Emmons Avenue and various lots near it being bought up for development. It is true that Cappuccino on the Bay is no longer operating on the bay, but there are still no “for sale” or “for lease” signs posted. I don’t remember seeing any on the building since late August, when I stopped by to get an after-dinner cappuccino and found the store closed. I tried calling the number a few times, only to hear the phone ringing. Is it possible that the owners are holding onto the number with hopes of re-opening at the same site or somewhere else?
While there are no signs stating whether the building is under contract for sale, sold, or being developed, there is a sign placed over the awning which obscures part of the cafe’s name. I thought that was a bit interesting, since it looks like that would have taken some amount of effort to secure it there.
Does anyone have any thoughts about why the sign might be obscured and, more importantly, what is going to happen to the space?
