Sold: Joe's 24th Street Cafe

We noticed a change of ownership sign in the window at Joe's 24th Street Café today (3853 24th St.). The restaurant has been for sale on and off for years and Joe finally found a buyer. Joe says he's tired and ready to turn it over to a new owner. He also says the new owners will keep the same concept and operate under the name Crafthouse. The ABC license, under the name John Dampeer / Crafthouse LLC based Glendale, California, is pending.

Update: We heard from new owner John Dampeer who states: "We will be changing the concept and giving the space a much needed update. Looking forward to being part of the neighborhood!" Stay tuned.

Oh, NO!!! My absolute favorite place to go on my frequent trips to visit family in SF. Maybe Alice can find us a new place to go? "Updates" are viewed with deep suspicion...

Crafthouse? Craft beers? One can only hope....

Wait here for Godot said...

Oh Murph, don't get stars in your eyes. The CA Secretary of State says this isn't even established in Glendale, but in SF:

Entity Number: 201107710295
Date Filed: 03/04/2011
Status: ACTIVE
Jurisdiction: CALIFORNIA
Entity Address: 65 BLAKE ST APT 1
Entity City, State, Zip: SAN FRANCISCO CA 94118
Agent for Service of Process: LEGALZOOM.COM, INC. (C2967349)

"Deep suspicion" is warranted. Shields up.

Anything besides the old tired restaurant.

Ever go by between 9 am and 1 pm on Saturday or Sunday? Usually full then.

My regular weekend brunch place! I'll miss it, but hey, change happens. It'll be interesting to see what the new thing is.

Thanks for all the eggs, Joe!
