Jed’s Gumtree Cafe in Tupelo is shutting its doors for the final time Friday.Gumtree-Cafe

“It’s with a heavy heart we announce Friday will be our last day to be open. Thank you to all our family who have supported us all this time. We love each and every one of you!” was its message today on Facebook.

The restaurant opened simply as Gumtree Cafe last January, and closed for a short time in June. It reopened in July under new owner Jed Duke and took on his name to become Jed’s Gumtree Cafe.

The restaurant on the corner of Daybrite and South Green Street seems to be a great lunch spot, albeit unlucky spot, apparently. In the past few years, it’s been home to Spencer’s, Whiteside’s and  Stults Catering & Restaurant before becoming Gumtree Cafe then Jed’s Gumtree Cafe.
