While the reasons aren't clear yet, it appears that iconic Nashville diner Hermitage Cafe is set to close.
A Facebook message from the owners would suggest that perhaps losing their space in the growing Rutledge Hills neighborhood isn't their choice.
This wouldn't be a new phenomenon. Just months ago, Athens Family Restaurant was displaced from it's longstanding location, only to quickly relocate to a new spot near Belmont. Many other Nashville staples have been given their walking papers by developers and landlords looking to capitalize on Nashville's skyrocketing real estate demand.
Just yesterday, it was announced that Mercy Lounge would be booted from the Cannery Row complex.
Hopefully that's not the case with the Hermitage Cafe, but it certainly seems like another victim of a growing trend in Music City.
