Cafe Estelle Closing Soon

Cafe Estelle, the always praised bruncherie in the awkward location at 444 N 4th Street is calling it quits after fiive-years. Owner and chef Marshall Green says he’s closing up shop at the end of September.

Green tells Michael Klein that after a vacation and some fishing, he’ll figure out what’s next.

Next for us, at least one last trip to Cafe Estelle.

UPDATE: Adam Erace talked to Marshall Green earlier today.

    Sad news, what a great bruncherie…Hopefully, Marshall Green will re-open at a new location in Philadelphia.

    I’m sad to see this close but I’m guilty of not visiting as often as I should because of the noman’s location. I mean there’s only one residential building there so even the realtors haven’t come up with a name for the area. That area used to be the skid row before the City plowed the entire area in the 60′s. I could see that area between Vine to Spring Garden, Front to 10th eventually becaoming a new area for offices or residnetial high rises but we are talking 20-30 years out. I hope they re-open somewhere else.

    Definitely my favorite brunch in the city. May Green return in a more sensible location!

    Used to go there all the time until they (or the building) stopped allowing parking in their lot. New favorite is Cafe Lift on 13th and Spring Garden.

    This saddens me deeply. Always been a fan of Cafe Estelle and all that they do there. It’s remarkable how good the menu is, and the level of care that goes into every single dish is evident. I wish Marshall and the staff best of luck in their future endeavors. Selfishly, I hope they are able to find a new location and reopen soon. Maybe the fishing trip will bring clarity and resolve.
