The former HipSTIR Cafe, at 125 Farrier Ave in Oneida, New York, is auctioning off its assets on Wednesday, Dec. 20th from 10am to 5pm.

HipStir Cafe originally opened in December 2016 in downtown Oneida. For several years, it was a popular lunch spot to grab a cup of joe and a bite to eat. The COVID-19 pandemic proved difficult for the upstart eatery, although its faithful clientele helped keep it afloat far longer than some.

The auction is being handled by Brzostek's Auction Service, Inc, whose listing says $100,000 worth of restaurant equipment and furniture will be sold.
