AS OF AUGUST 30th, 2018

“We are deeply saddened to announce the closing of The Candy Apple Café & Cocktails, which contributed to the growing and thriving restaurant community in Downtown Jacksonville. Opening and operating such a unique, out-of-the-box restaurant in the heart of our city’s urban core — and growing it to be a destination that was loved by people of all ages — was an incredible experience, and one we will always cherish. Unfortunately, we are simply unable to overcome the revenue losses we have incurred as a result of the prolonged closure of the building. We are proud of what we built: the food, the drinks, the memories, and especially the team of loyal employees and guests who made it all possible. Thanks to everyone for the years of fun and support, and for making this wild venture a success. We look forward to serving you through one of our other ventures.”

-Jennifer Earnest and Liz Earnest, owners of The Candy Apple Café & Cocktails-
