A coffee shop in Watertown that employed individuals with disabilities has closed. Power Cafe shut down for the Jewish holidays in October but later announced on its Facebook page that it would not reopen, as Boston Restaurant Talk reported.
"After much deliberation, we regretfully decided to remain closed indefinitely, due to personal reasons. We wish to thank our customers, partners, and the wider community for all your support over the past year," the post read.
Power Cafe opened in November of 2015. Located at 45 Lexington St., the shop was a collaboration between founder Galit Schwartz and Triangle Inc., and the staff included people with physical and/or developmental disabilities. Triangle is a nonprofit that helps prepare people with varied disabilities for the workforce, as previously reported.
The shop served coffee, tea, pastries, challah, salads, sandwiches, and more.
