In a lovely gracious message, Simon McWilliams, of Simon’s Place Cafe, announced to the legions of loyal customers and friends that an end of an era would mark the end of 2023 with the closing of Simon’s Place Cafe on the retirement of Simon:
“We cannot put into words how full our hearts are from the beautiful messages and the love you’ve all expressed over the last two days since our bittersweet announcement of Simons retirement and the passing of the torch into a new team in 2024”
Simon and his team have been a wonderful lynchpin of the George’s Street Arcade over many, many years as well as quenching many a thirst and filling many hungry tummies! We warmly thank Simon and his wonderful crew over the many years for all they have contributed to the life of the Arcade and we wish Simon a well deserved retirement as he opens another chapter of life!
Gwen summarised it very aptly: “It has been a great privilege in life to walk with you these 25 years” – all the best Simon – go raibh míle maith agat!
Watch this space for news of the successor to Simon’s Place coming soon!
