The sign outside the door of Cafe del Sol Monday afternoon said it all: Sorry. We’re closed due to deer damage. See you tomorrow.
Deer damage? Yes. Deer damage.
A wayward doe crashed through the front glass door of the popular Floyd coffee shop Monday afternoon.
The disoriented animal thrashed about, overturned tables and left hoof scratches on the highly-polished wood floor.
The frightened deer tried first to jump out through one of the large picture windows on the side of the shop but then crashed back through the same door it used to enter.
Thankfully, no one was hurt. The only people in the shop at the time were staff who stayed behind the counter until the animal left. By late afternoon, shop owner Sally Walker surveyed the damage and shook her head. "I didn’t know deer liked coffee," she said.
