Many a Houston restaurant has quietly shuttered overnight, leaving patrons confused and hungry the next day when they show up to an empty parking lot. But Cafe Artiste has been a fixture in the Montrose / University of St. Thomas area for almost as long as I’ve been alive.
I’m frankly not too concerned, since I was never impressed with Cafe Artiste or their service. But some people apparently feel as though they’ve lost a loved one. Were you a Cafe Artiste patron? If so, how are you mourning its loss?
And, of course, if you have any insight as to its untimely death, be sure to pass it along to Gus over at Swamplot!
