Workers renovate the old Nellie's Coffee and Toast space for a new entirely Lockspot-owned coffeestand.

Nellie's Coffee and Toast closed, to be replaced

Lockspot Cafe is splitting ways with Nellie's Coffee and Toast, which closed on Saturday as the Lockspot owners of the Lockspot have decided to open up their own coffeestand, according to a waitress. That coffeestand may be open as soon as tomorrow. Today, workers could be seen renovating the space.

We are not clear on the details yet, but a sign in the window reads, "Saturday was our last day, we are all overwhelmed by the love and support everyone has shown us! THANK YOU!!! - Jeannette and Todd" (Yes, the thank you is in all caps and there are that many exclamation marks.

If you recall, Nellie's moved to the Lockspot location back in 2010 after they decided their old location (at 17th Ave NW and NW 56th St) was simply too big.

We are reaching out to Todd and Jeannette and hope to get their side of the story soon.
