Beloved Acme Cafe to shutter at the end of November
There’s about to be a pie-shaped hole in your heart Vancouver, because Gastown’s Acme Cafe is closing its doors at the end of November.
The eatery, known for its epic pies, the happy hour that came with them, and delicious all-day breakfast announced on November 16 in an Instagram post that the 51 West Hastings Street space had been purchased and the new owners will be re-opening with a new concept.
The post from the owners had a caption that explained the reason for the closure, which is going down on November 28.
It is with very mixed feelings that we announce that Acme has been sold. The new owner will be opening with a new concept and Acme will be closing its doors, with November 28th being our last day.
It has been the adventure of a lifetime and we wouldn’t change a thing, but now it’s time for us to start a new chapter. We will miss working with our incredible staff, visiting with our regulars, and all the out-of-towners who always came in to say hi, more than we can possibly say. You have become friends and family.
We have learned and loved, and lost (our minds a little) along this windy path, and to those that have supported us, we extend our sincerest gratitude. We will treasure this experience for all our lives, and we will miss you all.
We wish you all the best, and hope you have a chance to come in and say bye. Thank you for making us a little part of your lives.
No word yet on what’s replacing the beloved local pie joint, but until we find out pie lovers can head to one of the other purveyors in Vancouver to eat their feelings about this sad loss for the foodie scene.
Address: 51 West Hastings Street, Vancouver
