Main Street Cafe closing

From the NHRs Luther Turmelle:

To Linda DeSilva, the biggest perk of owning the Main Street Cafe has been her interaction with people.

“I love the business, I love the people,” DeSilva said Friday as she and her husband, Manny, prepared to close the business she has owned for 4 1/2 years and worked at for another 4 1/2 years before that. “Most of our business has been regulars, and we try to make people comfortable.”

But the Main Street Cafe is about to be reduced to rubble to make way for a Rite Aid Pharmacy. And while Linda DeSilva is vowing to reopen later this year at another location, she acknowledges that this could be the end.

Opening again will likely be a daunting task. I understand the Dunkin Donuts in Stop'n'Shop just closed and reopened on West Main.

Now if we can only close Greenwich coffee before someone gets killed entering or exiting that dump.

It's just sad that it had to close to make room for another pharmacy. Linda and Manny are great and I hope they find another location in town sooner than later.
