FAQ

Why are you only open one day a week?
Good question! You are right, Lot 2 is only open one day a week and that is strange and disappointing. But Southside Coffee, our cafe just across the street on the corner of 19th and 6th Avenue, is open 7 days a week from 8am-4pm. All of our baking for Southside comes out of the Lot 2 kitchen. We share employees, prep space, ovens. We ourselves bake some days, make sandwiches other days, do the bookkeeping and payroll and general maintenance for both businesses all the days. And we feel so lucky to be able to serve a Lot 2 dinner, even if it’s just once a week. The combination of Southside and Lot 2 keeps us busy. And happy!

 

But why not hire more people so Lot 2 can be open more days? I miss Wednesdays.

 

We miss Wednesdays, too! And Sundays, Thursdays, Fridays. But here’s the truth. Lot 2 never, ever made any money. We always ran at a deficit. Even in the best of times whatever money we brought in each week was used to pay what we owed from many weeks before so that we could continue placing orders with vendors. It’s a stressful and risky way to operate. The pandemic exacerbated all that risk and stress and forced us to reevaluate. Strip everything down and decide what stays, what works, what risk do we want to take on and for what gain. For now, for us, focusing more on Southside, the steadier business, is what works. The gains for our family and children have been clear: more time together, slightly less stressed out parents.

 

We are so happy to get to run a bustling seven day a week coffee shop with our partner, Amber Sather, and to serve dinner one night a week. We don’t want to let go of Lot 2. We love the food and people too much! We aren’t great business people, clearly. And for as long as that remains true we’ll try and keep a little Lot 2 going. We hope you’ll join us for dinner on Saturday or any and every day of the week at Southside.

With love and thanks,

Teddy and Danny
