Dear Friends,

After 11 years of serving the community, Cup and Top Cafe will close its doors at 2pm on Thursday July 20th. We have enjoyed providing a welcoming space for children, grownups, students, business people, farmers, artists, authors, and performers. Thank you for returning the love for over a decade.

The cafe has been transferred to a wonderful couple who will re-open the space as “Freckled Fox Cafe” later this summer. The name will change, but some of the original vision will remain. We are confident that you will be delighted with the energy, ideas, food, and events that the new owners will bring.

And don’t worry about me – I am selling the cafe by choice, not by necessity.  It has been a great journey, and I’m ready for the next adventure!

With love and gratitude,


The Cup and Top Cafe will be closed on Tuesday July 4th.

Enjoy the holiday!
