The company that owns Joe's, Comptoir Libanais and others is based in the building. They want the space to expand their offices. Very sad to see it go. Their Spanish Breakfast was awesome.

Hardly a conglomerate. There is still a Joe's on Ludgate Hill, though. A bit of a trek, but they do delivery.

My kids will be sad, they liked going in as a treat after school on the odd occasion I could afford it.

Not sure conglomerate is the correct term but it is certainly part of a much larger group: Joe's Kitchen is part of The Restaurant Group which also owns Frankie & Benny's, Wagamama , Garfunkels, Chiquito and a few more smaller chains. Comptoir Libanais is a completely separate group unconnected to The Restaurant Group. I only know this because I have tried for years (unsuccessfully) to get my product into a few of these chains. Although frustratingly a lady who worked in TRG's accounts dept bought from us for personnel use so although we couldn't get the product into the restaurants we still had to deliver the odd box here and there to their offices on Marshalsea.

Clearly misinformed.

Not entirely... they run the Comptoir Libanais concessions at Gatwick and Heathrow.

Well the only time I ever ate at the place was Heathrow T4. I had cause to complain having been charged for 3 drinks that were never served. That would make sense.
