Landlord Wants Life Cafe Back

The Villager has more on Life Cafe’s (temporary?) closing. Owner Kathy Kirkpatrick is upset that scaffolding has loomed over her sidewalk cafe for over a year, even though – owing to a dispute between two landlords – exterior repairs to the building have yet to commence. But there’s hope from one of the landlords: “We’re in the process of trying to work this out. Life Cafe is an iconic and great restaurant, and I’d love to see it be a part of the East Village for the next 30 years.”
