Mittie’s Cafe and tea room in Alpharetta to close
After 14 years in Alpharetta, the quaint tea house and cafe on 62 North Main Street will close its doors on February 25. The reason behind the closure is not clear, but recent redevelopment in the northern Atlanta suburb could be to blame. Owners announced the closure via Facebook and indicated they would be moving to a commercial kitchen for the catering arm of their business while they search for another space for the cafe. The cafe’s historic downtown Roswell location which has been in business for 30 years remains open. [FACEBOOK]
