Crepes Cafe in Menlo Park will be closing on July 28, according to a message posted on its doors from owner Janet Scopazzi. The message said the building's new landlords have "other plans" for the space, located at 1195 Merrill St.
A longtime cafe employee said the restaurant now under construction in the former Gambardella's restaurant space, on the south side of the same building, is going to take the entire building. The new enterprise is an expansion of celebrity chef Bradley Ogden's empire of upscale restaurants.
Crepes Cafe has been open for 10 years. In her posted message, Ms. Scopazzi, who could not be reached for comment, thanked her customers and her staff; she gave no indication that her cafe would open at a new location.
