Cafeteria Marianao - Revocado!

Cafeteria Marianao appeared to be shut down this morning, unbeknownst to the regulars (including police officers) who were all still hanging around outside as usual. Hopefully a temporary thing. The sign posted on the door was posted by the revenue department, and not health (though it's in Spanish so I didn't get all the details), but licensing appears to be in order, per the city data portal. Anyone have any intel?

    They used to own a grocery store on Armitage. I can't remember the exact location, but they used to sell drugs out of the carnicería. They then opened a cafetería in the grocery store. At some point they closed the grocery store and opened the Cafetería on Milwaukee. Willie and his dad must be tired. They'll probably move to Miami when they sell.

    I can't remember if they were ever closed down for selling coke, but there were many other store owners that were caught in the late 80s/early 90s. Does anyone here remember El Rancho Latino or Casa Almendares? I'll betcha all the low life scumbags that hung out at Marianao were part of that crew. They did have tasty sandwiches though...authentically Cuban and dirty!
