BREAKING: Urban Shed Dead?

Or just reincarnated?


Urban Shed owner, Simon, has announced the impending closure of his beloved café on twitter. This is because he wants to "have some much needed rest and spend time with my family".

Known for its edgy interior decor, imaginative sandwich recipes, and exciting box meals, the Shed has been a staple of Cantab culture for five years. It has served over 500,000 customers, created 48 miles of sandwiches, ground 3 tonnes of coffee, and fed drunken students at 20 May Balls.

The Shed's doors will close for the final time on December 20th, after which the lease will be taken over by other local Cambridge "heroes" 'Thirsty'. They promise "a similar operation with a few surprises up their sleeves!"

Before this sad ending, they will host a 'Shed end-Thirsty after Party' on the 20th December from 5pm "to say goodbye from The Shed and offer a warm welcome to the Thirsty crew!"

This is no time for eulogising, however. You need not lay lilies at its door. The Shed is not dead! Simon promises that his brand of innovation and fun will live on in mobile form – "the ambulance (food truck) may pop up from time to time". Hallelujah.
