Recently Closed

Define Nutrition (next to Snowberry) has closed.

Fruit of the Wine has closed. This little wine bar never really had a fighting chance. The owner after spending all his capital on constructing a disabled toilet, really did not have the working capital to move forward. Unfortunately there was also an issue with the licence (which ended up in the licensing police removing all of the wine). Rob Simpson (the manager) advised that he had a restaurant licence but not a small bar licence. Rob claims he visited the NSW the office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing several times before he started the business but was not aware that he needed a small bar licence.

Under New Management

Agora has been sold and will now undergo a bit of  a refit.  It will eventually be rebranded as an IGA Express.  However it will still have a cafe and they will still serve rolls and sandwiches.

Coming Soon

According to the November issue of The Village Observer, 3 news stores will be opening at 12 Burns Bay Road (when the renovations are complete). They are a seafood restaurant (Fourth Fish), Bikini Island and a homewares store called The Hunted.

Lane Cove Council has approved the redevelopment of 38, 40, 42 Burns Bay Road, Lane Cove. This will involve demolition of 3 existing commercial buildings and construction of a mixed use building comprising 3 levels with a mezzanine of commercial/retail space and 3 dwellings. The stores currently occupying these sites are Dymocks, Kidstuff and Rea’s Family Butcher.

A new café will open in the new year in Greenwich (it will be located next to Greenwich Point Beauty) on Greenwich Road.

There is a rumour that a new café will also open in Lane Cove North on Mowbray Road (well according to an auctioneer at a recent property sale in the area)

So have we missed any openings or closings.  We thought we would leave you with this sign on a recently closed cafe in the States.  Do you think the owner was over it?
