The Squirrel’s Coffee Shop will be closing on August 15th in downtown Lafayette. Located on Moraga Rd. in front of the Lafayette Park Plaza, it has been in business for close to 30 years according to a quote by the owner in the Lamorinda Weekly, which reported the closing. The neighboring stores (cleaners, thrift store, and temporary art gallery) are all gone as well so it looks like that section will get a facelift soon, followed by a higher-end restaurant and other stores. Check out the developer’s page for the Park Plaza shops here.

    Hi, Adam, yes… breakfast lovers within the News24/680 readership (including a couple of our own staffers) were crestfallen to hear this when we ran the story July 23rd! Squirrels has been a favorite breakfast hangout for years. Keep rocking!

    SO SAD. I NAMED THIS RESTAURANT AND DESIGNED THE BEAUTIFUL SQUIRREL LOGO IN EARLY 1980.
    SORRY I COULD NOT SEE IT AGAIN BEFORE CLOSING
