Last week, the Post and Courier reported that Soif Café was closed, which confused me because I regularly receive information from owner Gail Summars regarding special events.

So I contacted her to find out if she is still open, and she is, sort of.

Soif, the wine shop, is still in operation, but the café portion closed a while back. Simmons says she’s struggling to keep the store itself afloat by doing regular special events. Stop by and stock up. She’ll be grateful you did.
