Cafe del Sol: Where, oh where, will we go for java?

Floyd’s popular coffee shop, Cafe del Sol, closes for the entire month of February, starting Monday.

A sign on the door of the establishment in the Winter Sun building on South Locust Street announces the closing, leaving caffeine-addicted Floyd Countians one less place to feed their habit or warm up on cold February mornings. The closing follows a trend of Floyd eateries that curtail their hours or shut down during the winter months. Oddfellas Cantina just reopened after a January break but reduced its winter hours to Thursday-Sunday.

Just last week, Cafe del Sol owner Sally Walker told us she wasn’t sure whether or not the shop would be closed for February but it looked like she decided. Earlier in the month, Walker cut the shop’s hours, closing at 4 p.m. Monday-Thursday. Cafe del Sol also let their ABC license lapse and stopped serving beer and wine “for the time being.”
