Letter to the Editor: Trokay Cafe an important community member

On October 28th, 2011, Court Leve argued very well regarding the Townand#8217;s parking situation and fiscal responsibility. That said, there are statements contained within his letter to the editor that we at Trokay Cafe would like to address.

Court says, and#8220;Did paid parking have a hand in the rapid exchange of ownership/closure of the Elijah Blues/Trookay Coffee shop (which is maybe now out business?)and#8221;

Trokay Cafe is not, nor is at risk of, going out of business.

Elijah Bleuand#8217;s House of Coffee and Good Eats closed because the then owners spontaneously decided to move to Florida. The argument that paid parking had anything to do with the closure of the aforementioned coffee shop is specious.

Trokay Cafe is not a coffee shop. Trokay Cafe is a restaurant, and a vital member of the community. We contribute to local humanitarian aid organizations and charities through our monthly benefit dinners, participate in local discourse, and are active members of the Truckee Downtown Merchants Association and Chamber of Commerce.

While we do serve coffee from the Bay areaand#8217;s Blue Bottle Coffee Company, our goal is to bring our many years of experience in the worldand#8217;s finest restaurants to Truckee. Trokay Cafe is about haute cuisine in a casual setting. Anyone visiting will note from the pictures of beautifully presented dishes, that Trokay Cafe not only serves the best coffee in the Tahoe region, but the best food as well.

Our beer, wine, artisanal cheese lists feature items unavailable anywhere in the region, and feature many items of international noteworthiness.

Our best regards to Court Leve, as we have little disagreement with the rest of his advocacy.
