With heavy hearts we regret to inform you that today, Friday, October 30th 2020, will be our last day of service.
This year has been a roller coaster of emotion. From our success with the 818 Lounge in February, to the closing of our business this spring, the GoFundMe campaign this summer, our rebirth in August, and now, a final ending.
We are so thankful to you all for giving us the chance to bring our family back together, however short lived it may have been. You, Oregon City, helped us to heal our people. To build them back up and make them stronger before having to send them back out into the world. For that we will be eternally grateful.
When we started Yvonne’s at Singer Hill we’d hoped for a long and happy life here, but in true 2020 fashion that just isn’t going to be possible.
Through no one person’s fault, we discovered earlier this month that the occupancy limit for the restaurant (the amount of people we’re allowed to have in the building) was much lower than we’d thought it was when we opened here. This caused us to have to remove several seats from our main dining room and almost all of the seating designated for our coffee guests. Obviously, less seating means less revenue, and we were unable to re-negotiate terms that would allow us to thrive with our reduced capacity and revenue stream.
We will always love and cherish you, Oregon City, and will never forget the joy you’ve brought us. Thank you all for giving us a place to call home. We’ll miss you.
P.S. To our staff. My family. My people. You are all so strong. So amazing. So talented, intelligent, charming and just downright hilarious at times. I could never have asked for better people to share my life with, and I will love you always.
