Fans of Espresso Royale Caffe at 1229 Hennepin Ave. S. might have been disappointed in recent weeks to see a "For Sale or Lease" sign in the window.

But have no worries -- the shop is staying put.

Noel Pittman, an associate at Coldwell Banker Burnet Realty, said that the space available is in the basement, below the coffee shop.

Pittman said there have been no takers for the space, which is zoned commercial.

He said the move would not disturb any existing businesses.

"There isn't anything down there," he said. "It's empty space at this time."
