Carlitos closes | Shoptalk | Halifax, Nova Scotia | THE COAST

They’re calling it “The Last Shot of Espresso,” when Carlitos Café (6220 Quinpool Road) shuts down at the end of the day, Saturday, March 27. The most recent casualty in a rash of business closings, the popular Quinpool coffee shop saw five years of business on the well-travelled thoroughfare. However, all may not be lost: Owner Carlos Wong is in talks with his landlord who may be interested in purchasing the business outright and running it himself. Watch this space for the gathering foam of information as it runneth over our media cup.
