    Cafe Gratitude in San Francisco could be closing its doors soon.

    INNER SUNSET—As noted by BA Veg, Cafe Gratitude's lease is over at the end of the month. However, they'll be staying open for some time on a month-to-month basis. They will eventually close when a new tenant is found or the business doesn't break even anymore, with fall '09 being the estimate for the latter scenario. A little more digging reveals that the landlord wanted to strap the cafe into a 20-year lease. Ouch. [EaterWire]
