The London Plane in Seattle's Pioneer Square is closing

A favorite in Pioneer Square is saying goodbye.

The London Plane, a space featuring a cafe/wine bar, flower shop and market, is closing its doors in December. The announcement was posted on the business' Instagram Friday.

"Over the last decade, we have been so fortunate for the support of our staff, our community & our network of farmers, ranchers, fishers, & artisans," the post stated. "At the end of this run, we are looking back fondly on the time we've spent & the work we've done."

This announcement comes at the same time as the shop's 10th anniversary and as the holiday season approaches. The London Plane will be open through Saturday, Dec. 24.

"While there are many reasons for this decision, we feel it is the best time to make it as our lease comes to an end. We are sad to say goodbye to our staff, who have become our chosen family & to close the doors to our guests, who we have come to know as friends. We are looking forward to seeing you at the shop before we turn out the lights, so please come down for a visit if you're able."
