If you’re a fan of King West’s beloved Portland Variety, tomorrow will be your last call for coffee and your final chance to fill up on spaghetti.

“Our final service will be on Saturday, September 28,” reads an Instagram post by the eatery, before offering eternal thanks to patrons for support through 2019, which was “difficult for the entire Portland family.”

“Milton, your presence is missed every day,” reads the post.

The caption reflects on how the space is like a second home for many staff, and that numerous relationships were built during early mornings and late nights while watching the neighbourhood evolve.

“All our staff, past and present, thank you for shaping Portland’s identity and approaching each day with professionalism. Each and every one of you have made sacrifices along the way and for that we are incredibly grateful,” it reads.

And for those who are major fan’s of the brand’s fierce cookies, don’t fear. They’ll still be available at Le Gourmand, also by Nunes, so the flavours of this spot can carry on.

“We loved every minute of the ride,” reads the post.

And from the cookies to the coffee to the stellar spaghetti, King West did too.
