Arin Bert Coffee and Grill is closed

According to a sign on the door, Arin Bert Coffee and Grill, 222 W. Wells St., is closed.

The cafe / Armenian restaurant opened in 2012, as reported by, and served Colectivo products, baked goods, frappes, smoothies and Italian sodas, along with traditional cuisine from the Caucasus Mountains.

Personally, I was a big fan of the cafe’s lentil soup, hummus and lavash (flat bread). The space, however, has a history of turnover and has been home to Finch's Corned Beef, Five Dollar Deli, Philly Way, Wingz and more.

Whether or not Arin Bert is closed for good has not been confirmed at this point. Stay tuned to for more information when it becomes available.

Don't forget Amazon Pizza in the list of places that have shuffled through that spot. Front runners by quite a lot were Arin Bert and Philly Way, but neither could get enough foot traffic in a desolate part of Westown. It's a shame for those of us who work in the area and keep seeing things close, with no turnaround in sight.

This place had fantastic, simple food, but every time you went in it was sadly empty. Hope they give it a shot again. Although, anyone who went there may also acknowledge some deficiencies on the front end of the business.
