Bad news for Cass Avenue's Melt gelato and espresso shop. Metro Times confirms rumors that the Midtown café is closed for good.

A male who answered the phone at Melt's landlord, Venn Parking LLC, declined to give his name but confirmed the closure. Melt just "didn't have enough business," the Venn Parking rep tells MT.

Midtown Detroit Inc.'s Sue Mosey tells the weekly, they are currently showing tenants the property.

Melt opened in October 2013. At the time many thought owner Aaron Haithcock's location was ideal, as it was situated so near to the other Midtown up and comers La Feria, Shinola, CityBird, and more. Eater has reached out to Haithcock and is awaiting a response.
