Cafe Azul closes

Cozy downtown coffeehouse shuttered

BiteClub heard late yesterday that the spacious Cafe Azul, which was a popular coffeehouse hangout for PD folks, as well as a convenient meeting place, has closed unexpectedly. The location in downtown featured art, live music and open mics, and always seemed to be humming with coffee drinkers. It’s never a happy thing to hear of closures, and I’m truly sorry to hear the news.

  1. Ate dinner at Checkers on the last day of Restaurant Week, and saw them putting up the signs as I was walking by the back door. It was sad.

  2. I’m truly sorry to hear this news. Cafe Azul was exactly the kind of coffee house that I love: comfortable and welcoming. The friendly and efficient baristas served great coffee and excellent food. Santa Rosa is a little less urban and hip without that fabulous independently owned spot. They will be missed.
