Melange Closing

Via the Beer Philosopher:

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I've just learned that Melange on Carbondale's Strip is closing its doors on Sunday, July 25th at 3:00pm for good. This is a real shame, as Melange had a lot to offer but couldn't seem to keep a consistent clientele for whatever reason.

I had noticed a sign posted on their outside menu board this afternoon that people were noticing but didn't take the time to stop the car and take a look.


  1. That's too bad. They put a lot of effort into that place. I bet it would have done better away from the strip, honestly.

  2. Pretty simple, no parking, no parking, no parking. Is there a restaurant kind of business on that side of the strip that hasn't closed?

    Every time I was in there and someone ordered a sandwich, you got to wait for the one person working to make it. If you are waiting 15 minutes for a coffee, it is time to go elsewhere.

    In the end, it was an OK place, but the customers spoke in the end (as they always do).
