Panolivo closes its doors after 15 years of service
“We have been welcomed since we started in 2003… we are so amazed by the support we’ve had since we’ve announced our retirement. It’s been overwhelming and just confirmed how right we were to come and live here,” said Didier Cop, who owns the restaurant along with his wife, Beatrice Cop.
The decision to retire was prompted by the Cop’s desire to spend time with their grandchildren, of which their second grandchild is due this week. The Cop’s will continue to live in Paso Robles during their retirement.
Jaffa Cafe was also serving delicious sandwiches, pita wraps, and pasta dishes in Panolivo’s location, and with Panolvio’s closure, the cafe will also close, according to Cop. The cafe opened in its current location in early January 2012, and currently has locations in Arroyo Grande, Santa Maria, and San Luis Obispo.
Over the years, customers have enjoyed popular dishes such as quiches, pastries, seafood croustade, parfaits, and much more. Even though Panolivo will close, customers can still enjoy their quiches and pastries at Angela’s Pastries, located at 1740 B Spring Street and is next to D K’s Donuts.
Customers can look forward to trying Farmstead Kitchen and Catering, which will operate in Panolivo’s location and open for business in December, according to reports. Farmstead Kitchen and Catering is based on a farm-to-table philosophy and will offer the community a chance to try their renowned dishes.
Panolivo will close after brunch on Nov. 10, and for customers who wish to enjoy their meals before they close, they are open Sunday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at 1344 Park Street. Jaffa Cafe also has the same hours as Panolivo.
