Dear Reed Opera House;
Today is the last day we are making crêpes within your walls. When Lynne and I first came to Salem in 2010, you were the first building we met. It was love at first sight. When we graduated from only a push cart to a brick and mortar location, it was your brick and mortar we chose. The best choice we could have made. We love our spot in the Reed lower level. You fulfilled all of our expectations and then some. Your character, your great looks, the perfect place for us to spread our storefront wings for the first time.
Alas, like so many before us, the bittersweet moment has arrived. Nurtured within your walls, we’ve grown in experience and confidence. You gave us the confidence to venture our, to explore working on a bigger stage. Soon we will open our new cafe just a few blocks away, with a bigger menu, more seating, and lots of new ideas we are looking forward to trying out here in Salem.
We all have “firsts” that we remember. Our first kiss, our first pet, perhaps our first love. Many of our guests remember their first crêpe. No matter where we go, we will always remember you with fondness and affection, Historic Reed Opera House, site of our first café.
Richard & Lynne
