Huddersfield café Coffee Cali confirms closing date as customers disappointed

Customers of a Huddersfield town centre café have been left shocked and disappointed after learning it is due to close at the end of the month.

Coffee Cali in Princess Alexandra Walk in the Piazza shopping area is due to close on September 23, according to a sign placed in the doorway. The coffee shop is popular with customers who enjoy sitting outside and watching the world go by.

Regulars have described it as a ‘meeting hub’ and a good place to enjoy a drink away from traffic. On Friday morning this week, most of the tables were taken up by customers.

Gillian Scales, from Huddersfield, said she had been visiting Coffee Cali for years and would miss its presence. “It’s a shock,” she said, speaking about the closure plans. “I never thought it would close. It’s busy and they are always friendly. It’s disappointing.”

David, a customer who spends time in Spain and Huddersfield, said: “This area is getting run down. The more things disappear, the more run down it appears, it gathers momentum.”

He spoke about the proposed redevelopment of the Piazza area, saying he was worried that people won’t have enough cash to spend once it is completed.

“There’s not much point developing the town centre when people have no money to spend due to a lack of jobs and opportunities.”

The owner of the Coffee Cali could not be reached for comment. A manager at Coffee Cali said the tenancy was coming to an end ahead of the proposed demolition proposals. However, she said the café may remain open after September 23 as a member of staff was hoping to keep it going.
