One of East Cobb’s more popular breakfast and lunch spots is closing, and soon.
Egg Harbor Cafe, which opened at the Stonewood Village Shopping Center on Lower Roswell Road at Woodlawn Drive in 2017, will be closing at the end of business on Sunday, according to Elliot Cash, a company spokesman.
He issued the following statement to East Cobb News about the reasons why:
“We are sad to announce that our lease here in East Cobb is coming to an end, and we have been unable to come to economic terms with our landlord to extend our lease, as years of roof leaks and extensive water damage to the building has rendered it an unacceptable situation for our business standards.”
The vacancy has been posted by Riverwood Properties, which manages the 32,295-square-foot shopping center for South Coast Management, LLC, the retail center’s owner.
Allie Hodge, a leasing manager at Riverwood, said she got word Monday from South Coast that Egg Harbor is intending to vacate the premises by Jan. 1.
Egg Harbor Cafe operates 20 restaurants in the Chicago area, Lake Geneva, Wis., and Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Buckhead and Sandy Springs.
The Egg Harbor Cafe space in East Cobb has been home to several restaurants, including the short-lived Tavola Italian Kitchen & Bar. Before that, it was Ritter’s, owned by Ritter Jones, who shuttered that and the Paper Mill Grill in late 2014 due to financial pressures.
The Flying Biscuit Cafe is returning to East Cobb, at Parkaire Landing, but a specific opening date has not been announced. The Atlanta-based breakfast and lunch chain is saying only that a tentative opening will be in the spring of 2020.
