What's Happening in:  Point Breeze 

Breezy’s Cafe leaving current location at 1200 Point Breeze Ave.

It’s been about two years since Breezy’s Cafe moved into their location at 1200 Point Breeze Ave.

Now the Cafe’s lease isn’t being renewed, leaving Breezy’s on the hunt for a new location for their Point Breeze neighborhood spot.

According to this Craigslist posting, OCF Reality has been searching for a new restaurant for this 1400 sq. ft. corner location for about a month now for a new tenant beginning in October 2016.

    Posted online from Ori Feibush of OCF:

    “Many of you asked me over the last few days why “I am pushing Breezy’s out” of their current location. I am not.

    You asked me why I couldn’t try and make things work. I have.

    You asked me why I haven’t given them a second chance. They had a dozen second chances.

    You asked me why I had to let them find out through social media that their space was for rent. I did not. I told them 4 months ago.

    You asked me why I couldn’t give them the first opportunity to lease their space again. I did.

    You believed these tall tails because every story must have a hero and a villain and OCF must be that villain.

    The truth is that Breezy’s had an opportunity that no small business owner ever gets. It’s an opportunity others could only dream of. Rather than take that opportunity and run with it, they took a crap all over it.

    I spent $150,000 of my own money to help Breezy’s open up at 1200 Point Breeze. That amount does not include the year of free rent which I gave them to get on their feet, the fronting of their security deposit so they could open the doors without spending a dollar, or the thousands I spent with a smile on my face for taxes and insurance to make their lives as easy as possible.

    You may also think that I own the building where Breezy’s is. I do not. I leased it for the sole purpose of giving them a real chance after they picked a terrible first location. Any of you who are disparaging my team are welcome to do the exact same thing for their next location.

    All of that said, life is too short to hold ill will and I consider this to be a simple reminder that no good deed goes unpunished.

    I wish Breezy’s nothing but success and hope they find their new location to be even better than their old.

      “tall tails”… oh, I get it! Because Breezy’s mascot is a cat! That’s pretty good.
