Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Sweet Sixteen cafe will be closing its doors at the end of the month.
Feb. 28 is the last day that the shop will be open, owner Ellen Martin said.
“Sweet Sixteen has been such a fun experience for my entire family especially my mother and me,” Martin said. “We’re just lucky enough to be able to retire.”
Sweet Rides Rentals on Canal Street, also owned by Martin, will remain open this summer. Wraps and salads will be added to the shop’s menu, as well as a new juice bar.
Martin said she has activities planned for summer at Sweet Rides, including the return of the chalk festival.
Martin said she had promised to keep the bike shop open for three years when she opened it in 2011, and this summer will mark the third year.
“After that, who knows?” Martin said. “I hope someone else may want to have as much fun as we did, and same thing with Sweet Sixteen Cafe. It would be a great place for someone who likes to have fun.”
Anyone with gift certificates to Sweet Sixteen can redeem them at the cafe by the end of the month or use them at Sweet Rides in the summer.
