I strolled into the re-vamped Anker Cafe on Friday, which looks nice. One good sign for Owners Bill and Katy Anker is that it was very busy during the lunch hour despite doing a quiet, soft opening a few days earlier. They didn’t have time to chat so I’ll try to get some details from them this week.
The Ankers originally took over the lease at the former Fantasia space on Cornwall Avenue last August, but then discovered it was a temporary situation and had to leave in October when The Assistance League moved in. So basically they’ve spent the past year finding and remodeling a new space.
The new Anker Cafe is at 1424 Cornwall Ave., near the Pickford Cinema. The cafe’s phone number is 318-7515.
