The popular, casual American-Middle Eastern restaurant on State Road in Tisbury is closing after lunch today, to reopen April 22 at 7:30 a.m.
Little House Cafe in Tisbury is going on vacation, according to a post on the restaurant's Facebook page: "We are closing today at 2:30 and taking a little spring break! We'll be back at 7:30am on Monday the 22nd... see you then!" MV Patch readers love the food at Little House Cafe: Blogger Jen Zern gave it a five-star review, posting on Patch: "Cuisine is actually more Greek and Middle Eastern than American.

This effectively means that patients with legitimate prescriptions may smoke pot anywhere tobacco smoking is allowed, but they won't be able to fill their prescriptions at a dispensary in Edgartown for at least a year. In Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven…
