A staple of Murfreesboro is closing its doors after 120-years. The City Cafe will close for good on Saturday.
The restaurant is owned by Rollin and Teresa Kellogg. The announcement was made Wednesday on their Facebook page. They say they tried to hang on through Christmas but are just unable to do so.
The owners report after “a long hard battle” they had no choice but to close due to COVID-19.
From the City Cafe Facebook page: “
We are SOOOO heartbroken to make this announcement. After a long hard battle, we have no choice but to close our doors due to the Covid 19 Pandemic.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 14th will be our last operating day. We tried so hard to push through and we just can’t continue our journey. We appreciate and love every single one of you who have made an impact and supported us for all of these years. Please come out and support us for our last few days!
