‘Zeke’s Coffee’ Closing in Pigtown

| February 27, 2024 | 0 Comments

Zeke’s Coffee will be closing at 784 Washington Blvd. in Pigtown on March 3rd. Zeke’s opened in Pigtown in February 2022 in a space that was a coffee shop for many years. The closure is due to a “reorganization and downsizing,” according to Pigtown Main Street.

Zeke’s is a well-known coffee brand in Baltimore which sells beans at local stores and is a mainstay at farmers’ markets. Its flagship store and roastery is located in Hamilton-Lauraville.

“Pigtown Main Street wants to reassure the community and businesses that the local economy in Pigtown is not the driving force of businesses leaving,” said Pigtown Main Street Executive Director Kim Lane. “Most have been due to space, and Mobtown Ballroom was due to a negligent landlord. The good news is that three new businesses are opening in the next few months: Mystique Barrel Brewing and Lager House, clothing boutique Pretty Disaster, and a Mexican-style restaurant.”

She added that Pigtown Main Street is also talking with another cafe team to take over 784 Washington Blvd.

“In the meantime, people should remember they can get delicious coffee from Culinary Architecture, Swill Apothecafé by Blacksmiths, and MA’EDE Ethiopian Market & Cafe,” said Lane.

Recent closures in Pigtown include Suspended Brewing Company, which will be replaced by Mystique; Groundwork Kitchen, which is currently for lease; Official Haute Mess, which will be replaced by Pretty Disaster; and Charm City Books, which recently relocated to Seton Hill.

Sens Store and Royal by SBE in Pigtown had to close in February 2023 following a fire.
