After 27 years of serving the Village by the Sea, Cafe Langley closed its doors Friday, Dec. 23.

“We appreciate the love and support from our community and will cherish all the memories and amazing people we have gotten the privilege to know these past 27 years,” a notice on the restaurant’s website said.

Cafe co-owner Carrie McLachlan said the restaurant would be closing for family reasons, and that the restaurant had run its course. She added that 27 years is a long time for a family-owned business to survive. McLachlan was married to the late co-owner Shant Garibyan.

“Many of our staff have 15-20 years with us, they truly have been our extended family,” McLachlan said.

The owners held a sale for restaurant furnishings on Dec. 28 and 29 at the restaurant, which included two glass panels made by South Whidbey artist KeKe Cribbs in the late ’80s. The Tacoma Glass Museum and Tacoma Art Museum are interested in displaying the pieces.
