After a little more than a year in business, Midtown's Le Petit Zinc announced in a Facebook post on Saturday that it is permanently closing. Its last day of business is Sunday.

"Thank you for your loyalty and showing up everyday to visit and support our little Café," the post reads.

"Le Petit Zinc has exciting changes in the making, until further notice," it continues, suggesting a change in concept.

The cafe moved to Midtown last year due to a landlord dispute at its Corktown location, which had been in business since 2009.

We reached out for comment and will update this post with more information.
