Ask RiotACT: What happened to Kingston Grind?

Hi Rioters,
Does anyone know what has happened to the Kingston Grind cafe? It shut around early September. There was a sign up saying it was closed for renovations. This sign has since been removed. There hasn’t been any activity on their facebook page since the end of June. I’m assuming it has closed / gone out of business? My observations are that since it changed owners a few years ago that it hasn’t been as popular.

It changed hands not that long ago. Service terrible and patronage dropped off. Not surprised it has closed.

Changed owners around 2012 I think, the new ones didn’t last long (about a year?), then was sold again. I presume they’ve run it until now.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it went out of business because the last three times I had been to the cafe the service was appalling.

Hmm, that’s odd. I could have sworn it was open a couple of weeks ago. Unless, for me, a couple of weeks ago actually was September as the irrepresible march of time forges on!
