Trendy java joint chain Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has shuttered all 12 of its New York City locations.

The chain of Los Angeles-based stores featured on shows like “Entourage” and “The Hills” closed down the dozen franchise locations over the weekend, the West Side Rag reported.

“All NYC stores were franchised and unfortunately are closing,” a spokesperson for the company told the blog.  “We value the brand’s loyal following in the Big Apple and intend to swiftly bring The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf hand-crafted coffees and teas . . . back to New York City,”.

On the Upper West Side, the chain had locations at 77th Street and Broadway, 79th Street and Columbus Avenue and 86th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Signs on the stores informed passersby that they would be “reopening soon.”

The java spot follows chains like Organic Juice and Pie Face that have shut down en masse in recent years. [West Side Rag]Rich Bockmann
