Two Local Coffee Shops Close is reporting that Portico Coffee Shop at 85 Parsons Ave and Urban Spirit Coffee Shop at 893 E Long St have closed in the past week.

Both businesses have cited decreased traffic due to the 71 freeway construction as well as a variety of other factors. Portico has reported that someone is interested in the taking over their space to use as an office, but that deal is still pending.

We are sad to see them go, but are excited about the ongoing development continuing throughout Olde Towne East. We wish them nothing but the best in all their future endeavors.
