The Green Leafe Café on Scotland Street has closed down for an unspecified length of time.

The pub was open for business Wednesday night, but has not reopened since. A sign posted on the property’s window stated the Green Leafe, 765 Scotland St., was closed for renovations.

“New Leafe coming soon!” the sign reads.

Glenn Gormley and Mario Kokolis, the respective business owner and property landlord, did not return requests for comment.

The Green Leafe’s liquor license is active until June 30.

The pub first opened in 1974, according to its website. A second Green Leafe location opened in New Town in 2008, but closed in 2012. Paul’s Deli & Neighborhood Restaurant has since opened in that same space.

Former customers have taken to social media to bid farewell to the Green Leafe, which has been a staple in the downtown area, near the College of William & Mary’s campus, for decades.

The Green Leafe’s Facebook page has “liked” several of these posts on its wall, but no official comment from the pub has published to that page, which last had an update to its wall March 30.
