Other one bites the dust at the old Basil location in Osborne Village. Why any one would try to make a go at that location is beyond me.

i do some work for Basil. there have been 4 restaurants in there since 2013 (including Basils itself). none have lasted even a year except basils and that was only 14 months or so. every time they go belly up i move in and clean out the place. it's a great location but i don't know what's gonna have to occur for something to stick and be profitable. maybe a large rich chain or split it into two independent businesses..

Your right it is a great location, but nowadays everyone wants to be a restaurateur, big dreams little cash over priced food and drink poor service and they wonder why they close, give me a small mom and pop hole in the ground any day of the week.

ya man. i live nearby and was pretty disappointed pete couldn't make it. it was the closest thing to a meat and potatoes breakfast place around. not a huge fan of Stellas although it's ok now and then. the old osborne village inn cafe was the best in its prime.
