The cafe will have food and drink specials before shutting at the end of business on Sunday. There is no word yet on the cause of the closing, and it does not appear a reopening is in the works at the moment.

Multiple inquiries to representatives of Cafe 640 were not immediately returned.

The restaurant will be open from 11am to 12am Friday and Saturday and 10am to 10pm on Sunday during its last weekend in service, according to its website.

  1. Cafe 640 is actually in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood, not Virginia-Highland, but that’s OK. Sorry to see they are closing. Great patio and pretty good food. Hope something interesting will go into that location.

  2. “Landlord wants to run a restaurant. …..” was the comment made by Cafe 640 in the Facebook post thread that announced the closing.

  3. The owner of that space also owns the Highland Inn. Was told by several residents in the area it became a “known thing” recently that he wants to open his own this in that space and make it much more of a destination particularly with the new project almost caddy-corner. We shall see.
