DOWNTOWN—After serving vegan-friendly breakfasts downtown for 18 years, the Morning Star Cafe quietly shuttered just before the holidays. Breakfast in Bridgetown spots this Tweet from the cafe's official account, and the restaurant's phone number has been disconnected. The online message suggests that a new restaurant "is in the works." More information as it becomes available. [Twitter]

NORTH PORTLANDThe quirky retail shop Palace of Industry officially called it quits on New Year's Eve, and the space (which housed a sometimes-bar with four taps) will morph into a proper drinking establishment in the form of the Lost and Found Lounge. Per an OLCC application, the 44-seat spot plans to be open until midnight daily. [EaterWire]
