BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A popular eatery in downtown Burlington is closing its doors for good.

The owners of the café and lunch spot, Penny Cluse, announced they will close after serving Vermonters for 25 years.

They opened in 1998 at the intersection of Cherry Street and South Winooski Avenue.

Owner Charles Reeves says now is a good time to step back but they appreciate the regulars who have come in over the years and the employees, who have grown up working there.

“We made the decision that it’s time to go out on a high note, time to do other things, and we really appreciate having been here and it’s totally amazing,” Reeves said.

Reeves plans to officially close between Thanksgiving and Christmas but no official word on an exact date.
