After less than three months in business, Medusa's Cafe is now listed for sale.

Medusa's Cafe owners Chrysanthy Prousalis and Nick Solomos, of Peabody, spent months renovating the interior of the former Taste of Thyme space on Washington Street, even adding decorative Grecian columns before they opened in September.

Customers looking to stop in for lunch last week were greeted by a notice posted on the front door announcing that the business had been closed per court order.

The Somerville-based developer RCG is now looking for a new tenant, according to a sign posted in the business' front window. Interested parties can call RCG at 978-740-0006.

Salem Patch will post additional information as it becomes available. 

Did you stop by Medusa's Cafe when it was open? What did you think? 

What would you like to see move in at this location?

I used to go to Fountain Place for a good breakfast before it was sold to the current owners. But two very bad experiences (of the stomach bug variety) have turned us off from there. I'd love to see a superior breakfast place go in the Taste of Thyme location again too.

Taste of Thyme was decent. The name was a bit too ambiguous, especially for tourists. We need an old fashioned, solid breakfast place. It should be called: Charlie's Breakfast. Don't get too fancy with the name.

90% of restaurants fail in their first year. It has nothing to do with the Mayor or Salem.

90% of statics are made up.Wouldn't we notice if 9 out of 10 restaurants were closing there doors the 1st year? Restaurants have about the same failure rate as any other small business.

I noticed a new restaurant that will open soon, the signs are up, apparently went up last week, but it hasn't opened yet. It is Norinds (hope I have that right) Roast Beef and Pizza, it's on Traders Way in the same building housing Peoples United Bank, it's situated between Liberty Tax and QCuts.
