What happened? The Pruneyard’s Coffee Society cafe is just gone. If you stopped by for a cup after Wednesday March 6th, you got a disappointing surprise. Owner, Paul Ebrahemi said he’s been losing business because of both construction and competition and decided to shut down after 15 years. Ebrahemi, 76, is battling prostate cancer, the reason the Pruneyard management believed was his motive for leaving.
I think what’s saddest is not being able to have one last visit at a favorite hang-out. The shop was gone before many knew it was going away. We sure hope for the best for Paul and his health and thank him for his service to the community over the years.
