Renovations coming to Café Centraal!

We are announcing today that we will be closing Café Centraal in Bay View for renovations beginning January 2 and scheduled to be back in action and better than ever in early February.

When we opened Centraal back in 2008 we did it on a shoestring budget and Bay View was a pretty different place. We’re excited by how much the neighborhood has grown in the past decade,  and these renovations are really about setting Centraal up for its next ten years in Bay View. This will be the latest in a series of our grand cafés to be renovated—with recent facelifts given to Café Benelux, Café Hollander Tosa, and Downer Ave.—now it’s Café Centraal’s turn!  We’re putting a lot of extra love into Café Centraal this time around. 

Our planned updates include expanding the kitchen substantially, adding new food and beverage coolers and freezers in the basement, refinishing the flooring, redesigning the bar with a dramatic increase the number of draught lines, and a visual update throughout the space.

We have more exciting updates in store for Café Centraal and we can’t wait to share updates with you, so stay tuned!

Café Centraal is open regular hours through the end of the year, including brunch for seven consecutive days during the holidays, from December 26th through New Year’s Day. It is closed on Christmas day.
