In case you missed this post from Friday... Ciao For Now, the cafe-bakery at 523 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B, is closing after 17 years in business.
Today is the last day. Ciao For Now is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for breakfast and lunch.
Moving forward, the Miceli family will continue on with their online catering business.
Here's part of Ciao For Now's farewell note:
It is difficult to put into words all of the emotions we are feeling. We feel like we gave it everything we’ve got but as we are seeing all over NYC, the retail small business model has become nearly impossible to sustain. We have met so many incredible people along the way.
