Star City Coffee House on Brambleton Avenue in southwest Roanoke County has closed.
A note on the door reads in part: "We thank you for your patronage. We have enjoyed making many great meals for you over these past four years. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must unfortunately close our doors."
Calls to one of the business owners, Ed O'Keefe, were not returned. Jon Smallwood, also listed as an owner on Star City's Coffee House's website, replied to an email but did not disclose why the coffee shop closed.
He wrote that "things are a bit hectic at the moment." He also wrote that Star City Coffee Co., a coffee roaster in Salem also owned by Smallwood and O'Keefe, is still in business.
The coffee house opened in November 2009. In addition to coffee, Star City also served breakfast and lunch.
