Pho in Marda Loop... Cooming Soon!

Somebody must be listening out there! I am thrilled to say that the Sitio Cafe is closed down and a new Vietnamese rest is opening mid Feb on the main drag.

This is what our loop really needs!

*crossing my fingers that the food is good!

    i live around the corner and was excited to see the sign as well - i'm thinking the owners are the same people as sitio though

      Sitio owners are Korean, not that this means there won't be a Vietnamese joint there

      Sitio just never found its groove- it didn't work as a coffeehouse, it didn't work for sandwiches, it had a tiny Asian menu, just poorly conceived. Marda Loop really needs Viet place, so bravo!!!

        I have a feeling it is not the same owners. I haven't seen them around this week of construction, and seeing that the "American menu" wasn't working. i really don't see them swinging a whole new ethic menu.

      Where abouts is Cafe Sitio? Is it near Red Tree?
