BATON ROUGE - After 25 years of business, the well-known Highland Coffee house near LSU's North Gates will close its doors on Christmas Eve.

The business confirmed to News 2 they will close on Dec. 24 so they can finish serving people through the fall semester.

In a post on their Facebook page, owner Clarke Cazdow said they were not given a new lease by the building's owner. The message said the building's owner wanted to "go in another direction." 

The specialty coffee and tea shop first opened in 1989 on Highland and Chimes. The Daily Reveille reports that owner Clarke Cazdow plans to reopen at another location.

News 2 will have more reaction to the closure tonight starting at 4 p.m.
