Cafe mini-chain Austin Java is shuttering its original location off North Lamar Boulevard, as reported by Austin 360. Its last day will be on Halloween, Tuesday, October 31.

This doesn’t mean Austin Java is slowing down, though. The cafe will expand with four new locations, including the already-known one out in Dripping Springs, as reported by Community Impact. That one should open within the next month according to a staffer. Then there are cafes set for Manchaca Road, one outside of the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, and far east on East Riverside.

Austin Java currently operates four other locations as well: one on Barton Springs, the other within City Hall, the express 360 cafe, and the stand within the airport. All of those will remain open.

The menu spanned coffee, breakfast (pancakes, waffles, omelettes), soups, salads, burgers, tacos, pasta, and more.

Austin Java first opened on Parkway in 1995. It expanded with other locations since then, some which have shuttered, like the one out in the Oasis and the one up on Windsor Road (which became vegan gastropub The Beer Plant).
