When Bobbi's Coffee Shop closed in March, the community's pain in losing this bastion was felt.
Cupertino Patch followed the story closely about how the diner's then-owner wasn't making rent payments. Then the original Bobbi talked to us about how sad it made her that the coffee shop with her name on it was sullied with a black mark. Bobbi Thorne shared with us her fond memories of the diner she considered a home.
Along came Bill Dancer who remembered the great food and service of the diner and longed to return it to its glory. Come Saturday he gets his chance.
