Sugar Cafe on Allen Street Closes Indefinitely Due to ‘Plumbing Emergency’ [Updated]

Sugar Cafe, the reliable 24-hour eatery on Allen Street, went dark early yesterday. Handwritten signs on both corner doors blame an ambiguous “plumbing emergency” for the closure. They’ll remain of the sidelines until the problem is remedied.
“We will not be able to open until the problem is solved,” the note says.
Update: apparently the closure is a result of the constant roadwork out front. We received this note from a tipster – “Yesterday as I was passing Sugar, I saw the owner. He pointed to a hole being dug in the street next to Sugar on Houston as the cause of the problem, and said they hoped to reopen very soon.”
The no-frills Sugar Cafe has been feeding the area from 200 Allen Street (East Houston) for over a decade. It’s weathered the winds of gentrification and the three-years-behind-schedule reconstruction project at its doorstep.
Now, where will Batman and Joker be able to eat together in peace?
