Friday will be the last day for the Clark Park location of Cafe Con Leche.

The coffee shop, which has operated at 4200 W. Vernor Hwy. for seven years, posted to social media Tuesday announcing that terms with the landlord could not be met and that the cafe will close after Friday.

Serving Spanish, Mexican and Cuban coffee, hot and cold specialty drinks and sandwiches, the cafe was seen as a gathering place for the neighborhood. Cafe Con Leche started in the Mercado in Mexicantown and moved to the corner of Vernor and Scotten with the help of the Southwest Detroit Business Association.

Cafe Con Leche’s New Center location, which opened in early 2015 at 2990 W. Grand Blvd., will remain open.
