Was Cafe Gratitude too big to fail? Today the Bay Citizen brings word that all of the cafe's legal troubles are "resolved." Some of the NorCal locations will remain open, though they are not disclosing which ones, or the nature of the settlement.
After all the hubbub, doesn't that seem a little quick and easy? "Everything's fine you guys, nothing to see here, bye!" Stay tuned for more developments as we try to piece together what happened behind the scenes.
Update: According to Cafe Gratitude's Facebook page, they are now hiring in their Berkeley and San Francisco locations. Commenters are crying foul.
