I walked by Harrison St. Coffee Shop this morning and there was a paper sign taped up in the window saying “Closed until further notice.”

Next to it was a sign saying “Please deliver mail to Rumors next door.”  Rumors is a new clothing boutique.

So I stopped in Rumors to ask if they knew what was happening with Harrison St.  They said there’d been a fire and the cafe would be closed for several weeks while they determined what needed fixing.  But they assured me they plan to reopen as soon as possible.

Which is good because I’d miss their beer-battered tofu sandwich and fair-trade coffee. And good for their employees and owners too.
