RONCEVERTE, WV (WVNS) — A Ronceverte staple closed its doors permanently last week.
The owners of the Edgarton Café announced their retirement. The closure of the café leaves Ronceverte without a single restaurant.
A couple living in Ronceverte, Jorge and Chris Rodriguez-Stanley, decided they would be the ones to lease the Edgarton Café building and purchase the equipment. The pair said their plan is to open a coffee shop.
“Coffee shops are community,” Chris said. “They serve coffee, sure, but they’re a place that people gather, they use the internet to study, they meet their friends here to talk, business deals go on, and we want to be not only a place to come get coffee and a place for community, but a place to have events.”
The name of the coffee shop will be The RNCVRT. They plan to have an opening date in a few months.
