We were all so excited when the cool little Bicycle Cafe at Lawther and Northwest Highway opened last February. The Advocate even went in, tried the food and did a photo shoot for the magazine. It was great.

Only a few weeks later, we hear that owner Armando Guerrero is selling the place, but he promised fans on Facebook that the restaurant would remain open. Now it’s closed. He’s still telling those Facebook friends that it is temporary, but he told Teresa Gubbins on Pegasus that he has accepted a construction gig in Mexico where he expects to make “way more money”.

He told her that the Bicycle Cafe for him was more like a hobby. A toy. He told her he hopes to rekindle the bicycle cafe concept at a later date, that he hasn’t given up on it. Doesn’t sound to me like it will reopen anytime soon unless he finds a buyer.
