Caféen blev kåret som Byens Bedste i november 2019, men måtte lukke måneden efter. 

Det er kun få måneder siden, at The Lazy Wombat i Ceres Byen blev kåret som Byens Bedste Café 2019 af Århus Stiftstidende. Nu er caféen lukket. Det offentliggjorde caféen selv på sociale medier den 23. december 2019.

“I am very sorry we did not get to say goodbye to everyone, it has been an extremely tough week. Everyone who knows the wombat well understands that we have had to battle very hard. In Aarhus, making organic homemade food is more than challenging, especially when there are so many cheap alternatives,” skriver The Lazy Wombat blandt andet på Facebook.

I opslaget takker caféen desuden både personale og gæster.

“A massive thanks to our fantastic regular customers who understood what we were all about. It was a pleasure serving you your brekkie in house or a croissant and flat white on the run.”

The Lazy Wombat blev åbnet i 2017.
