The last few years has been hard on Jack’s Coffee Shop. Between medical issues, the pandemic, and the struggles of being a small business owner, one of Wichita’s most classic hole-in-the-wall restaurants announced they have closed. It was a tumultuous handful of years that had multiple closings, but this one appears permanent.
Located at 6154 S Hydraulic St., Jack’s Coffee Shop was one of those you had to know exactly where you were going or else you’d miss the place. They were a no-frills burger joint that for the longest time only served burgers and a bowl of chips, despite having ‘coffee shop’ in their name. It was a favorite of many diners in Wichita looking for an unassuming vibe and a burger that would fill you up for days.
The announcement was posted on their Facebook page Friday afternoon.
Jack’s Coffee Shop will be missed.
