I was sad to see that Pollen Industries cafe on Brunswick St has closed. I liked their coffee and they made wonderful homebaked sweet and savoury treats, but somehow it never caught on and became popular. I think the fact that they didn’t do breakfast was a problem. Many of the reasons why small businesses fail remain unclear, but unfortunately I wasn’t surprised. Intuitively, it just didn’t seem to be the kind of cafe that would succeed.
