Bread Basket Cafe II, located on 8th Street and Elm, will be closing its doors on Saturday, December 13.

News of BBC II's closing was met with surprise and sadness from staff and regulars at the restaurant, including Server Taylor Baker.

"I am so sad. Not only is it a great place to hang out, we have kind of become a family here and even the regulars too," Baker said. "It is definitely one of my favorite places to be."

Baker said she was called in late last week for the announcement, but not given much more detail other than the date.

Opus Group

A lawsuit seeking to delay the Opus Group’s downtown student development project has been moved to federal court.

The United States Courts, Western District of Missouri will hear the case following a notice of removal filed last Thursday by attorney Christopher Rackers, representing the city of Columbia.

The lawsuit filed August 12 against the city of Columbia and City Manager Mike Matthes alleges a violation of the plaintiffs’ civil rights to free speech and to petition the government.

The Columbia Missourian reports this morning that city council members voted 5-1 last night on a new plan with The Opus Group.
