The owners of Café Nola have announced the closure of their downtown Winslow restaurant.
Kevin and Whitney Warren announced they were closing their business on social media posts late this week.
“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of Café Nola. It has been a fabulous 19 years and we are very grateful for you, our wonderful guests. Thank you for the support and lasting memories,” the couple posed on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
“We would like to thank our amazing staff, past & present, the community of Bainbridge Island, our reliable vendors, neighbors and the downtown Winslow merchants.
“Although we were unable to negotiate a lease, we sincerely appreciate the use of this corner space for the past 2 decades,” the farewell notice said.
The couple will continue to run their other restaurant, The Plate & Pint, in the Island Village Shopping Center on High School Road.
Café Nola earned widespread praise as a must-visit restaurant on Bainbridge in the years since it opened. It was also once featured as the “best brunch spot in Seattle” in an episode of the television show “Giada’s Weekend Getaways” on Food Network.
