A colleague just informed me that Tuscany Cafe on Rittenhouse Square closed their doors today thanks to what they say was an issue with their lease. “Where am I supposed to get coffee?” she asks. “I am not going to go to La Colombe.” As you can see in the photo, they’re directing folks to two other area locations, which we have to admit we didn’t even know existed.
Because you asked (5/3/2011): Okay, so I agree that my colleague’s Colombe aversion needs explanation, so I asked her. Don’t shoot the messenger. Her response: “1) The god awful scene. 2) The SNL skit-worth pretension. 3) The two coffee drinks I’ve gotten there in the past have been foul.”
