Keep Caffé Italia in Davis

From page A6 | February 12, 2014 | 2 Comments

A week or two ago, Heidy Kellison wrote in her “Personal Shopper” column about the potential loss of a longtime Davis business, Caffé Italia. I’m writing to also say that I think it would be more than a shame if Caffé Italia is forced to relocate out of the community.

When Shar Katz, who along with her husband Kevin owns and runs the business, first told me they might have to move from their current location, my response was, “I didn’t know you could move a Davis landmark.” Shar indicated that, yes, you could, that the owner of the building wants to go in another direction, but it looked like Caffé Italia could land in another Davis location in South Davis. That apparently has fizzled out.

I don’t know the ins and outs of that, but I do know that Shar and Kevin have been amazing supporters of community events and leaders in such programs as composting commercial waste. They show up at a remarkable number of community events and are always, always, bearing huge smiles and even bigger hearts.

I know the city is talking about and spending a lot of money on attracting new business to Davis. I hope city leaders can take a step back, realize what a gem we have in this existing business — and these business people — and focus their attention and efforts on helping keep it and them in Davis.

    Should Davis not be able to work out a solution for Caffe Italia... Winters will welcome it with open arms. It worked out well for The Palms. Just a thought...

    Caffe Italia has really gone downhill over the years- food quality is down and prices are up. I ate there recently after a several year hiatus and will not be returning.
