Molly's Cupcakes Coming to 1150 S. Wabash (Artists Cafe)

There has been quite a bit of news regarding what is gong to replace the Artists Cafe on Wabash.  Well I guess it has finally been decided, Molly’s Cupcakes will be replacing that space.  See pics below:

This prime space had a tough go with Artists Cafe but we chalk that up to the business since Five Guys seems to be killing it next door.  As a reminder, Artists Cafe opened back in the fall of 2012.  We like the restaurant, but it was pretty pricey for what it was.  They closed four years later.

Quickly after that in 2016, a permit for a Rosebud Cafe showed up which seemed promising.  That never materialized and in hindsight maybe for the best. 

While we're not sure how a cupcake shop will do in the Sloop, it is a different business and all things equaled should be a great addition to the neighborhood.  Hopefully they kill it!
