It’s a sad day in the life of Sather Lane. It seems that not even the laudatory review by the Daily Cal now posted on its window (and really, what higher praise could an establishment receive?) could save the beloved Sufficient Grounds.

It’s not just the ubiquitous mound of free donut samples, the free wi-fi and the prevalence of available seating that made Sufficient Grounds so great … well maybe it was. They are a little on the pricey side after all, and let’s face it, it’s not easy competing against Yogurt Park.

No news on what will replace Sufficient Grounds but the current owner predicts that it will be a similar establishment due to strict regulations about what can be sold on the property. We’re just hoping the words “frozen” and “yogurt” won’t be involved.

Update: It’s not 100 percent whether Sufficient Grounds will close.

Oh man, I love Sufficient Grounds. I hope they don’t have to close. =(
