The impact of this news on residents is huge, and the fight for Doyle’s has only just begun. A Facebook group cited “Save Doyle’s Cafe” has been created, and as of press time has 711 likes. The page includes photos, videos, and links to historical information about the restaurant’s impact on the community throughout the years.
As its name suggests, the page aims to garner support for saving Doyle’s, and a post from Wednesday evening states that “this is *not* a done deal—the building has *not* been sold. The biggest problem is that the rent is too high to run a viable business.”
The post goes on to ask people to write a postcard or letter to the owner of the building, Edward J. Burke, telling him the significance Doyle’s has had on themselves and the community. “Pledge to him that you will eat there at least once a month to make Doyle’s financially sustainable,” the post reads. Edward Burke’s address is available via the City of Boston’s Assessing On-Line tool.
