Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea Closes in Downtown Walnut Creek

Lyric, Walnut Creek

Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea, which opened over the summer at the Lyric apartment complex in downtown Walnut Creek, has closed. It looks like this happened around the same time Momo’s closed across the street. Thanks to all who emailed about this.

From an email:

It is with heavy hearts that we announce Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea will be closing on Sunday, March 3. Please know that if we could keep Sweetwaters open any longer, we certainly would.

We have sincerely enjoyed serving and getting to know all of our wonderful guests, employing the most amazing, hardworking and passionate staff, supporting local artists, businesses and charities, hosting meetup groups, live performances, pop-up shops, educational classes, and many other community events at Sweetwaters, and participating in many local events and charities around town.

San Francisco Creamery Closes over Cockroach Infestation

Thanks to a reader for pointing out this SF Gate article that shows that San Francisco Creamery in Walnut Creek was closed by health inspectors over a cockroach infestation. For ice cream in downtown Walnut Creek check out Lottie’s Creamery or CREAM.

From the article:

Violations found by the health inspector on February 25 — four days after the business reported their last pest control visit — include seven or more live cockroaches (and droppings) on the refrigerator gasket at the cook line, as well as others on top of a soybean oil container next to a food prep sink, near a dishwashing sink and inside a cockroach egg case on a hotel pan.

Dead cockroaches were found on the gasket of the walk-in freezer, near the water heater, on top of a soap dispenser, inside a cabinet were soda machine is stored and next to a freezer that stores ice cream cakes.
