Will miss the questions of the day. Would get maybe ten percent correct, but usually they were thought provoking. This writer bought his last coffee at Charmers Cafe earlier today. Will miss the Chiclets, the spoonerisms, (only one that comes to mind now is Fart Smella instead of Smart Fella, which probably was a roast beef sandwich) of the Dagel and Beli, the abundant free papers like News-Star or the Onion, the New York Times and the friendly baristas . Charmers first opened its doors back in May of 2006, making it nearly a seven year run.
The barista above was nice enough to pose for this picture for posterity. In addition to a large dark roast this writer bought a commerative t-shirt and a cinnamon bun. Found the Ten Thousand Ripples cardboard sign at Fargo and Greenview, after stopping in Charmers it was replaced back to its rightful place at Greenview and Jarvis. The more things change they stay the same, happy to have known you Charmers and company. Rumour has it that the coffee service will continue with the new restaurant and hopefully the free and for sale papers will as well. And hopefully it will continue to serve as the unofficial community hub for Jarvis Square, just more along the lines of Selmarie of Lincoln Square.
