TUCSON, Ariz. — An eastside breakfast spot has served its last plate of pancakes after more than six decades.

Village Inn says it closed the Speedway location Sunday afternoon.

"After very careful consideration, we have made the tough but necessary decision to discontinue operations at this location,” said a Village Inn spokesman. “This is never an easy decision to make and one driven by many business factors. It is important to note that all employees who desire to stay with the company will be relocated to another location in the market or will be provided a parting severance package. Village Inn can’t thank our loyal guests enough for their friendship and patronage over the years, and we invite them to join us at one of our other many locations where they will see the same friendly faces and enjoy great-tasting food."

They also said all employees who want to stay with the company will be re-located or given a severance package.

Village Inn also has Tucson locations on Harrison Road and at Tucson Pavillions.
