Kirkland Cafe - Will it Reopen?

A few months ago, someone mentioned that the "new" Kirkland would reopen sometime soon.

Is anything slated to go in there?

      Not sure how that search will help -- pretty sure Hungry Mother is in the former Kendall Cafe spot - Kirkland Cafe was next to Dali across from EVOO/Kabob Factory

        Oops....thanks for the correction. ;D

    2. There's definitely activity in the building. Not sure what's up, though.

      1. I live down the street from the Kirkland. Its been in its present state for at least a year. At one point, they said "six months", but that was way more than six months ago.

        From having been in there, I can say that the place was in need of a major facelift, so maybe they ran into more problems than they anticipated? Economic downturn slowed things down? I'll see if I can find out more from neighbors in the know.

          My son also lives near by, and saw refrigeration equipment and floor tiles being brought into the place so hopefully something is going on.
