Local Harvest Café will be closing its café operation located in the Old Post Office building Downtown St. Louis effective today (Fri., March 7).

The catering will now be managed out of LHC at 3137 Morgan Ford Rd. in Tower Grove.

“This is a return to how we previously did business and the best decision for strengthening our core," says co-owner Patrick Horine in an email announcement issued this morning.

The space, located in the Old Post Office at 815 Olive, is managed by The Desco Group. Local Harvest was behind on the rent with The Desco Group and had been working with them to come up with a solution. "In the end, the best decision was to part ways. The Desco Group was great to work with throughout our 21 months in the space,” adds Horine in the release.

“We will miss our downtown customers and the beautiful space. It was an honor to be downtown, and we are excited to see the continued revitalization of downtown. After a very public fundraising campaign, we have to make the best decisions to insure that we will be around for a long time to come. This makes the most sense at this point. Again, we are grateful to The Desco Group for working with us through this. We know that, in the end, it will be good for our businesses. We look forward to welcoming some of the staff to our LHC location."
