The bad news: barista extraordinaire Alex Brooks is leaving Pi
, according to a posting on the restaurant's Facebook page
Brooks came from Portland, Oregon, to get the coffee bar at the Central West End location (400 North Euclid Avenue) established. He's headed home to return to his studies. Sunday was his last day at Pi.
The good news: he's leaving a fully-trained staff, which allows Pi to expand their coffee bar hours beyond breakfast. Starting Monday, the coffee bar and espresso will be available from 6 a.m. until midnight.
