As we prepare to close our beloved Upstairs Cafe (located at the Central Street Metra station) this Friday, we’d like to humbly thank all of our customers and other Evanstonians for their support in our battle to stay open. Hundreds of people sent letters and made calls to Union Pacific on our behalf, and we are truly grateful. Our very small business made a big impact on commuters and while it’s unfortunate that Union Pacific doesn’t recognize its value as a community hub, we will always be grateful to those who do.
