Given all the expansion of UF elsewhere around town I didn’t see this one coming… I guess there are no major employers in proximity to generate lunchtime business like the other locations. So my guess is either the landlord needs to reflect the modest daytime demand into the rent expectations if it wants to attract another cafe or perhaps a business geared towards the attracting the dinner crowd would be a better fit?

I hear the Blue Wheeler may be on the way out, too.

Take heart: it’s great space that will be snatched up by a more attractive tenant in no time. Clearly that model wasnt working there.

This is a bummer. It was a worthwhile risk for them, but they may have been just a few years too early.

I’m surprised at this and sorry to hear it! But I’m sure it wasn’t a hasty decision either…still a tough climate for small businesses.

The space is awkward and unappealing. I believe it’ll take a more unique product than coffee and groceries to get people down in there. I loved that they tried though.

I don’t know what they did better than anyone else in the neighborhood except be farther east.

This is so sad. I visited often as I like their food and coffee. That said, the space was an odd one – not extremely warm and inviting but I looked beyond that. I hope whoever comes in next will do great things!

Those places suck anyway. Go to Alchemy, Lamplighter, Shockoe Espresso or anyone else who knows how to make a real cup of coffee.

Coffee was a tad pricey and no refills. Put them in a non-competitive with the big chains

It is an awkward set up for a coffee shop. I think it would be better suited as a full service restaurant. The space reminds me of Ipanema, and they never seem to have a problem with attracting a clientele. It could be a really interesting space for the right kind of restaurant. Thank you to Urban Farmhouse for giving it a try.

Bad location and, quite frankly, the food wasn’t worth it.

Instead moaning about it, as Kathleen said, at least they gave it a go. Personal opinions are relevant as Picasso painting to the mule. Hope the place will be utilized soon for something else as Church Hill needs optimistic people and investment. So, thank you Urban Farmhouse and I hope recovery from the loss is fast.

Did not know that this existed. Maybe marketing more strategically could have helped…

Maybe if they could pull a decent espresso shot there’d be a reason to go there. Alas….

But, as far as I know, the owner’s business plan is to build up a small chain and sell it. So perhaps this is the beginning.

The Church Hill Farmhouse was one of the laziest, annoying and uninspiring businesses I’ve ever encountered when I lived in the neighborhood. Once Union Market started delivering, for me it was Game Over for the Farmhouse. And I lived on the 500 block of 33rd!

@chpn makes me very sad. Loved it being close and the cozy atmosphere, but it was always empty. 🙁

It really is too bad, but that place was ALWAYS empty. There was no way they were even close to being profitable.

The real tragedy is that block — Urban Farmhouse was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise drab block of CH.

Now if only Blue Wheeler would fold as well…

It’s not about coffee. It’s about charging way too much for a tiny sandwich and obscenely thick carrots as an apparent side dish. It’s a perfect space with a beautiful patio and I’m hopeful it’s turned into a place that serves brunch and Bloody Marys.
