NORWALK, Conn. -- SoNo Caffeine, the Washington Street coffee shop known for its gourmet coffee, sweet treats, and live music closed its doors for good this week, according to The Hour.

Caffeine owner Abdou Bennani decided to close the South Norwalk shop because he said the city is not promoting the area properly, and because a lack of parking and nearby construction projects have cut foot traffic, according to the article.

Caffeine, which had been open for 14 years, is the seventh business to close in SoNo in recent months.

According to the Hour, Caffeine joins Sassafras, Jeff's Cuisine, Red Lulu, Shanghai Asian Bistro, Papaya Thai and Rouge Wine Bar as businesses that have closed down in SoNo. The Black Bear Saloon and Nola are reportedly closed temporarily.
