NORTHAMPTON — Prospective diners at Side Street Cafe in Florence were greeted with the news Friday that the restaurant has closed.

A sign on the restaurant’s door dated Oct. 31 reads, “Side Street Cafe is now closed for business. We thank all of our patrons for your continued support. Best wishes.”

Attempts to reach the cafe via telephone were unsuccessful Friday. A message left for chef and owner Patrick Shannon was not immediately returned.

There was no information about the closing on the cafe’s website and the last posting on its Facebook page is dated Aug. 5, 2013.

Side Street Cafe opened in April 2006.
