You’ve probably heard the news.
It’s been reported that Melbourne’s Sunshine Cafe has closed after more than 40 years.
The Sunshine Cafe was established in 1955, and since its inception has served patrons in Melbourne’s south and west, and even in Sydney.
“The Sunshine Café has been Melbourne’s most popular cafe since it opened its doors in 1955,” said the cafe’s co-founder, Bobbie and Terry Grosch.
Now, they’re closing their doors, but the cafe will be open in its original location, located in the heart of the city.
This is good news for Sunshine cafe owners, as the cafe could have a hard time getting back on its feet.
Melbourne’s Sunshine cafe, where the cafe is located, has been closed since April 10.
It was closed after the ABC revealed a Melbourne council worker was using the cafe for his own personal use, which resulted in the cafe being fined $1000.
The ABC also revealed that Sunshine cafe staff were receiving the $1000 fine for their own personal activities.
Sunshine cafe owners say they’re glad to see the cafe reopened, and hope it can continue to offer a place for Melbourne’s small businesses to gather.
