780 Café Bites the Dust in the Mission

We weren’t exactly confident that after The Summit stepped away from the cool space they had at 780 Mission due to a rent hike they couldn’t abide, a small mom-and-pop café, was somehow going to succeed there under similar conditions. Alas, we are sad but not shocked as Eater reports today that 780 Café has closed after nine months in what appears to be a bankruptcy. The space, which was rumored to be on the market last February for $30,000 a month, is up for grabs again and will likely get taken by a more high-profile tenant. Umami Burger, anyone? [Eater]
