    That’s too bad that their rent was raised like that. Didn’t that happen to Giovanni’s the other year?

    I read on Noozhawk that someone who was a business person who had an office nearby said they “never integrated into the community.” I don’t know why they’d say that considering they contributed to fundraisers, hosted meetups and had affordable, smooth coffee.

    I live in Montecito and I didn’t go there every day, but I will still miss them. It seems like the takeover with “independent” chains from LA is nearly complete. I got a free coupon in the mail for Cafe Luxxe the other week but the latte I would order at CBTL was $4.50 vs $8 there.
