“Au Bon Pain permanently closed at 1100 Vermont (Vermont and L).
This follows the closure of the Zoup! on the other corner, in the same building. They have signage up indicating a full renovation for 2019 and seemingly soliciting new retail and offices… And there was the rumor about a downtown Wawa coming in which no longer seems to be the case.”

UPDATE from the owner:
“I changed the name of the restaurant to Bryson’s Cafe after my first born son who is now 13 months. There is no curse! Our business is doing really good especially our catering business. We are actually in the process of expanding and seeking new locations under our new name. 19th St Customers can expect a small remodel coming soon and some minor tweaks to the menu with a heavy focus on our new mix and match tacos which have been wildly popular. Any future remodel work we will just do on the weekends but we will stay open. We will also be running some really good promotions in the upcoming future, such as our $1 large la colombe coffee which we are running right now. Bryson’s is an evolution of Moxies. Since we are locally owned and operated, We took all the feedback from 2 years and we adapted and made improvements. We will continue to improve and customers should check out the “new” Bryson’s Cafe!”

Thanks to Nora for sending. Though I will certainly miss the name ‘Nice & Quick Mart’, that really is an awesome name, this has nice potential for a good lunch spot. Stay tuned for an opening date.
Ed. Note: Charcoal Town also contributed to ending our Shawarma drought.
