Pittsburgh LGBT Coffee House Bar Closes

Just got word from a reader that the Tuscany Cafe, a Southside gay mecca for a decade or so, has unexpectedly closed.

He reports that he stopped by per his usual routine on Saturday afternoon and found a note taped to the door thanking patrons for their business and indicating they (the owners) would see them at Rehobeth Beach. 

The phone number has been disconnected.

Tuscany combined a coffee house front with a quiet bar tucked into the back of the space.  The sandwiches were delish as were the desserts. 

Ledcat and I have frequented the Tuscany often when we venture out for dinner or a cultural event on the Southside.  I was, in fact, planning to stop by tomorrow when I attend an event at City Theater.  We had been pleased with recent renovations and a very friendly staff. 

What a loss.
