Fremont loses a coffee shop

A reader emailed me that The Cyclo Cafe at the woebegone Globe Development off of Stevenson and I-880 has closed. It took the cafe forever to open, and when it did, it charged more than $2 for a cup of coffee.

The same reader said that Pasta Presto on Grimmer has also closed. I’d never eaten there.

Speaking of Fremont business, the city’s business guru Daren Fields is retiring. I like Daren even though he insists on misspelling his first name. Word is he’ll pursue is true passion as part of a Peter, Paul and Mary tribute band.

Quiz: Who’s Daren and who’s Peter Yarrow?

Here’s Peter and the gang:

  1. We went to the Cyclo Cafe once, it was nice but we were the only customers there.

    I’m more surprised about Pasta Presto, they’ve been open since 89 or 90 and always seemed busy. I’ll have to go by this weekend to see if it is true.

  2. It’s sad the Cyclo Cafe closed, looked like something worth trying.

    That said, that whole Globe Development is a joke and the people who opened the Cyclo Cafe should have known better.
