Small East Austin coffee shop East Village Cafe has lost their lease and has been forced to close. Owner Will Stewart dropped in on Eater's comments to share the news, as well as to weigh in on the challenges of running a cafe in Austin:
"There is a fine line between having full tables that turn over frequently and keep the register running or having full tables of free wifi surfers who camp. . ."He also notes that a "brisk stop-and-go" business is key to a cafe's success. According to their Twitter feed, the owners are looking to find a new small space to set up shop.
