Handlebar’s Last Day Is Saturday

••• Handlebar is throwing in the towel after Saturday. “We wanted to give you all a couple opportunities to come by with our limited take out hours of 6:30 a.m.-12 noon Friday and Saturday. We have quite a few hundred bags of fresh roasted coffee, boxes of Oat & Almond milk, we have essentials like TP & anything to help you hunker down over the next bit of time while we all try to overcome this.” Also, “you can order from us at handlebarcoffee.com with free shipping.” UPDATE 3/21: “After much thought & talk with employees we will keep both cafes OPEN 7 days/week limited hours 6:30-12noon. We will also still be providing free shipping on 2 bags or more ( and we have 5lb bags available )for anyone purchasing through our web store handlebarcoffee.com & lastly we will be providing the community a marketplace to buy items like TP, pasta, rice, beans eggs, oat & almond milk and all the essentials through both our cafes. The marketplace at both cafes will begin Tuesday.”

••• And Café Ana has closed, but: “We’re still planning for our next step (delivery/take-out) next week if we’re able to resume business then.”

••• From Low Pigeon: “Our new hours of operation will be from 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m. [and] all 12oz retail coffee bags are reduced to $12 (and 5lb bags reduced to $65).”

••• From Los Agaves: “We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Los Agaves Westlake Village and Oxnard locations, as well as Santo Mezcal and Flor De Maiz, starting March 18 until further notice. Our Milpas, De La Vina and Goleta locations remain open, but for to-go, curbside service and delivery service only [using 3rd party online delivery services].” —Restaurant Guy
