Tillie's Bean RIP
The original Tillie's Bean at 28th Ave./38th St., one of the few coffee shops in southeast Minneapolis, shut its doors last month and left the following notice:
We thank all our friends and neighbors for a wonderful six years of making great coffee for you at Tillie's Bean. It is with regret and a heavy heart that we announce Tillie's Bean is now closed for business. Thank you for your patronage. Take care. The family of Tillie's Bean.
The news comes not so long after the closure of the Tillie's Bean at Franklin and Nicollet (the former home of Acadia, which quickly closed the short-lived Oliver, as well). The Tillie's Bean website is no longer working, but if you'll miss the shop, leave your condolences on their Facebook page.
