Fire at South Lakes Village Center Closes Stores, Awesome Restauraunt

Actually, this morning's two-alarm fire at South Lakes Village Center apparently started in the roof above Hour Eyes, but Cafesano and most of the businesses on that side of the shopping center are closed because the power is out. Our BFFs at Patch have details and some exciting pictures of all the hook-and-ladder action, if you're into such things.

Update: Cafesano remains closed, but is offering takeout, catering and curbside service from its Market storefront a few doors down from the restaurant. "The restaurant suffered considerable damage from the fire and we suspect that it's going to be a couple of weeks before we're able to
re-open," an email sent to customers said. "In the meantime, we'll do our very best to serve you from The Market."

Fire officials now say the restaurant's pizza oven is apparently the cause of the blaze, which has also shuttered Hour Eyes.


  1. Bummer. Cafe Sano is closed, yet the Macaroni Grill remains open. Proof of an unfair universe.

  2. I was the one there screaming "Theatre!", and yet no one arrested me.

  3. Thankfully no one was hurt, though it made a mess of things in the shopping center for most of the morning.

  4. Brick-oven pizzas... when will people learn?!
