Tequila Bookworm, Gone but Not.

Amidst all the New Year's Day text messages wishing me a happy 2007, I received one text that nearly ruined the day: "Tequila is GONE!"

In with it came this photo of Tequila Bookworm cafe, shut down and for lease.

Being one of my absolute favourite cafes for meeting with friends -- or even holding blogTO meetings -- this was not good news. I spent the better part of the afternoon (after picking a different place to meet that evening) in disbelief... and then another friend reminded me of the cafe's blog.

Better news...

"We have moved to 512 Queen St. W., 10 Doors West," reads Tequila's blog.

Bittersweet, as I loved the old tin-ceiling location, but good news never-the-less. The blog goes on to say,

"After 3 months of sleepless nights (and no time to blog) the main floor of the new location is renovated and open. Sadly our old location is closed after 10 years of hot coffee. The new place features lacquered barn wood tables and our original espresso machine with a flying brass eagle on top. Currently our menu is the same (sans crepe) but we will shortly add a full hot menu to take advantage of the range, grill and fryer in the new kitchen. Our second floor bar and dining-room is still under construction but will open soon. Join us seven days a week and for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays."

Looks like it's time for a blogTO re-review when the kitchen is ready.
