Smoked out: Marijuana incident closing popular Outpost Cafe in Brooklyn

Where there’s toke, there’s fire.

A blunt break appears to be behind the closing of a popular Brooklyn cafe which shut down abruptly Thursday.

Outpost Cafe owner Michael Khoo said the Clinton HIll club is shutting down indefinitely, though he declined to comment on a cryptic text message that had employees buzzing.

Khoo, in a message to employees of the Fulton Street spot, said a man, presumably an employee, was “smoking weed” with a bunch of his friends after working hours.

“My dad and I had to come at midnight to get them out,” Khoo said in the message. “We feel this is unsafe and might be an issue later down the road. I am sorry for this late notice. I will be calling you guys to pick up your check later today."

Khoo did not elaborate on the issue.

Khoo’s family purchased the business from another owner who bought it from the entrepreneurs who opened the cafe.

Customers described Outpost as an LGBT-friendly establishment where customers can sit on antique furnishings eat, drink coffee and bring a laptop. Menu items include Ginger Green Apple, Lemonade and Loose Leaf Tea.

The cafe also featured live music, poetry readings and garden seating in the back.
