Remodeling Kitchen - Wall Must Go


Hello everyone. I am in the preliminary stages of remodeling my kitchen. I am planning on removing the archway/wall separating my current kitchen from a small breakfast nook to open up the space. I was hoping you guys could give me an idea of what you think about this wall being load bearing. I am 90% certain it is only cosmetic as my next door neighbors (with the same 40's built cape cod) removed the same wall in their kitchen and also because the wall does not continue through the second floor into the second floor or the attic. Above it is a large closet where the closet wall does not line up with this one and below it does not continue into the basement. This wall runs parallel with the floor joists in the basement. I'm not sure if that is any indication like the roof trusses.
