This morning, while out getting a coffee, I noticed that Le Bar a Soup has a For Rent sign in the window, as well as a bunch of old computer and electronics equipment which looks like it’s for sale. The first place to close on Ossington in a while.
I quite enjoyed this little soup spot, but I think it was probably hard for them to make a go of it in a neighbourhood which was better known and trafficed in the evening, rather than over lunch, which is when I tended to frequent the little take-out joint.
In August they had a sign in the window saying they’d be gone until September. Another one went up in September saying they were extending the closure. It looks like they ran off on the landlord.
Hopefully someone will make the location even better, but unfortunately it won’t be a food place, unless it falls into the the soviet planning of Mr. Pantalone.
