Recently, the restaurant announced its plans to move locations. But what should guests expect when it comes to dining at the new location?

The owner, Mohannad Sahyouni, says diners should expect “a new dining experience with the same quality of food and service.” The new location will feature lots of outdoor dining, indoor seating that is more spaced out, and a private event room for guests to look enjoy.

Though they don’t have an official reopening set in stone, they plan to debut the new location sometime during the first two weeks of November.

If you’re concerned about the distance, worry no longer! The Cafe’s new location will be on Old Shell Road, a five-minute drive from its original location.
