According to a sign on the door, Arin Bert Coffee and Grill, 222 W. Wells St., is closed.
The cafe / Armenian restaurant opened in 2012, as reported by OnMilwaukee.com, and served Colectivo products, baked goods, frappes, smoothies and Italian sodas, along with traditional cuisine from the Caucasus Mountains.
Personally, I was a big fan of the cafe’s lentil soup, hummus and lavash (flat bread). The space, however, has a history of turnover and has been home to Finch's Corned Beef, Five Dollar Deli, Philly Way, Wingz and more.
Whether or not Arin Bert is closed for good has not been confirmed at this point. Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee.com for more information when it becomes available.
