The Dime Store, the upscale diner from DOC, Nonna, and Yakuza restaurateur Dayna McErlean, has announced it is closing on Facebook. Opened July 2014, The Dime Store took over the former Leo's Non-Smoking Coffee Shop space, offering classic teal swivel chairs and booths along with daily scrambled egg specials, seasonal sandwiches, and shakes, cocktails, and brews. The complete Facebook message reads:
Over the past few years, we've enjoyed being a part of the downtown community. It was a hard decision but sadly we have decided to close our doors. Thanks to everyone that's supported us and have dined with us. We will miss you all and happy holidays!
The Dime Store had served breakfast, brunch, and lunch at 837 SW 11th Ave., Portland.
