The local Bridge Café that has been serving Wright State students for 15 years has recently decided to close its doors due to circumstances related to the coronavirus.

They will not be returning for the 2020-2021 academic year, according to a Facebook post.

“It has been an honor and privilege to be a part of the fabric of life at WSU. Thank you for the imprint you have made on our lives as we shared community, coffee and milkshakes within our walls,” according to the post.

Throughout their 15 years of business, they’ve happily served countless students, faculty and local families. Their coffee, milkshakes and cozy atmosphere had a sweet impact on the people around WSU.

They’ve held many fun events such as open mic night, movie night and even discounts for students on finals week. Thousands of memories were made at this coffee shop; their service will be remembered.

As unfortunate as this is, they have made this difficult decision in order to not only protect their employees, but to also protect customers and people in the Fairborn area.

Though this is the last year for the Bridge Café, this will not be the end. Their staff will continue to move forward and share hope and beverages with others.

For any questions regarding the reopening of the Bridge Café in the distant future, contact their Facebook page at Bridge Cafe.
