RIP Tiny’s, Dock Cafe
A tipster e-mailed earlier this week to let us know that Tiny’s, the cute little candy shop on Webster Street, and its companion Dock Cafe, have closed. I headed over there myself and peered in the window of two closed shops, and their contents were entirely cleared out.
I talked with Dock owner Wendy DeWeerd in March, and she told me it took her and her husband two years to get the cafe up and running. It was there about 15 months. Tiny’s opened on Webster Street in 2004, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
I tried calling DeWeerd to ask what happened but couldn’t reach her for comment.
The closure comes on the heels of the Webster Pharmacy’s move to Safeway and the continued closure of Tillie’s diner (still hoping to hear back from them about their fate).
On the plus side, though, Webster’s got a new cafe, Wescafe, on the way, and their new Saturday farmer’s market. (And over on Park, Yogofina finally opened and there’s a new kiddie store called Tot Tank slated for what was a Hallmark shop).
