The Chinese-American fast food joint L&M Cafe, known for serving inexpensive greasy breakfasts all day long, quietly closed its doors at the base of Market Street Cinema this weekend.

A note from the owners taped to the restaurant's door, between Sixth and Seventh on Market, states, "Thank you for the past 20 years of business. L&M Cafe is officially closed for business, due to the building reconstruction."

While building permits haven't been filed just yet, the 103-year-old theater will soon be demolished for an eight-story mixed-use building with 90 residential units and 8,500 square feet of retail fronting Market and Stevenson.
