Jitters Café on Geyser Road Closes
The old local favorite featured homemade food — wraps, salads, desserts — made by former owner Gina Prince and her family. Jitters also offered a full breakfast menu, coffee, smoothies and every Wednesday night hosted a 7 p.m. open mic night followed by local musicians playing on the weekends.
Jitters phone number is disconnected, so I had to do some online sleuthing for this one. It turns out the surprised staff in the newsroom might have just learned about the closing today, as my biz detective work revealed signs of a Jitters shutdown as early as late June.
According to fan posts on the Jitters Café Facebook page, talk of an upcoming closing generated in early July.
Jitters' last activity was a post about an open mic night happening on June 22, but right after that loyal customers began expressing their dismay writing, "Please call — no answer at the shop," and "How sad to see the artwork, creativity and talent of such a wonderful place come to an end."
Other Facebook followers begged for owner, Gina, to return their calls, but there was no activity from Gina or Jitters since late June.
Anyone have any more information as to why Jitters might have closed or what's going into the empty space next, please comment and let me know!
We'll miss you Jitters.
