Standee's Closing

Standee's Coffee Shop

After 60 years, local landmark Standee's Coffee Shop closed its doors today. A Chicago Tribune article reports that the property owners intend to replace the diner with a "casual" restaurant serving "organic" food.

Another article in the Lake Effect News tells more details of the restaurant's closing, and the many diners who have become fans of the little diner over the years.

Hopefully the fabulous neon sign will be saved, but it will be sorely missed.
