The note I left on the door...


Hello friends!  

I know this may come as a surprise to some of you but Sharkey’s Cafe is no longer.  The deal closed rather quickly last week and the way it played out I didn’t have the luxury of time to let everyone know that Friday would be our last day.  We tried to use our Facebook and Instagram to spread the news quickly but I know some of you may just be finding out now.  I’m sorry we were not able to say a proper goodbye to some of you, our loyal customers & diehard fans.  

Special thanks to everyone who was able to come by to celebrate with us one last time on Friday.  We heard there were emails going around in the DAs office to help spread the news that it was our last day and it was amazing to see how many people showed up on such short notice to show us some love and say goodbye.  We weren’t quite prepared to be mobbed like that so lunch service turned out to be, as Daizha said, quite a ‘messterpiece’ lol.  We were so touched!  We had a great run and it was amazing to end on such a high note.  So THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.   

We love you guys and will miss you so much!!!

What comes next for us?  Follow us on Facebook or Instagram if you like.  The girls gave my permission to post their info if you want to keep in touch!

This is a happy change for us & the timing just seemed to be right for all of us to go our separate ways.  Change is good.  Life is good :)

I’m so grateful that I managed to find some great people to take over here.  I think you’re going to love ‘em and I know you are going to love their food.  I’m excited to pass the torch to them and be able to watch them grow their dream now.  I hope that you will show them all the same love & support you have shown us these past few years.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU again for supporting small family businesses. I truly understand now that we really do vote with our dollars.

The faces will change around here and yet some things remain the same.Everything matters. Relationships matter. People matter.
