Chocolaterian Café to close for good Aug. 18

Sweet-toothed consumers all over Madison are in mourning with the news that the Chocolaterian Café will permanently close on Aug. 18, and Mother Nature is largely to blame.  

According to an article in the Wisconsin State Journal, majority owner Leanne Cordisco says the business had trouble generating cash flow after fire at the Atwood location and a flood at the Middleton shop. The café, which was known for dessert favorites such as Badger Bait and “Ugly” cookies, opened in 2012.
