Now this is an unusual closing, and the sign posted at Allie’s Vegan Pizzeria & Café, 1314 S. Grand Blvd. #6, says it all:

“Allie’s brunch has been popular and we have loved being able to offer a delicious vegan breakfast on the weekend. So it is with more than a little sadness that we are announcing that our last brunch will be offered Sunday, May 19. This will allow us to better use our resources to serve you.”

One of the waitresses said there is talk of opening a brunch-only location. Allie’s customers chimed in on the closure.

Kelsie Barany said, “I’m disappointed.” Barany moved here a few weeks ago, but before, when visiting, she had eaten during regular menu times. She had brunch at Allie’s for the first time recently and saw the sign on the door that said brunch was stopping.

“It was the best brunch I’ve had in a very long time,” she said. “Every time we come, almost all the tables are full. I hope another vegan restaurant opens a brunch place soon.”

Jess Albinson said, “This is unlike anything else in Spokane as far as brunch goes, so it’s pretty disappointing that it’s ending.”

And a bummed Wes Jester said, “I don’t understand why they’d stop something when it’s clearly bringing 70 people.”
