Booster's Cafe in the Loop Closed

       The scene at Booster's. | Nancy Stiles

It appears that Booster's Cafe (567 Melville Avenue, University City) has closed after six years of business. The breakfast restaurant, which normally opens at 7 a.m., was locked with all of the chairs stacked on top of tables. A small sign in the window simply says, "Booster's Cafe is no longer in operation."

I used to go there in the early mornings after insomnia nights since I live 2 blocks away from there. They had awesome pumpkin pancake and great coffee. Guess now people could only go to Starbucks or Panera for breakfast in the Loop.

I'm upset. I'll miss Booster's. Not just killer sausages and great coffee, but the coffee was self serve, which I liked.

Only went there once, but yeah, best sausage in town. And it was my understanding the place operated for a great cause. Bummer.
