2012 hasn’t been kind to coffee and baked goods. First, ACKC shuts its doors. Now it’s Love Café. City Paper reported Friday on this “first major casualty” of the cupcake craze. Could that really be true?

After eight years in business, cupcake evangelist Warren Brown reported the news on Twitter last week, and a note on the Café’s website gives the closing date as January 29th. But don’t worry — the Cake Love bakery across the street will remain open.

Add Love Cafe to the list of “old-timer” businesses in the 14th and U Street area that closed in the past few months.
