I’m throwing in the towel, Gladys. We’re closing down. Just look around. Most of our tables are empty. People aren’t eating out anymore.
Our entire savings went into this place. When we first opened The Stained Glass Cafe three years ago, we were SRO every night. The waiting list was months long.
Then COVID hit.
Due to the lockdown, we closed for 18 months. But last year, vaccines rolled out, restrictions eased, and we reopened. We were in business again. Until Delta. And then Omicron. It’s just not sustainable. I’m done with trying to make a go of it.
