Cafe Katja Temporarily Closing for Orchard Street Expansion
There’s no turning back now. Cafe Katja is knee-deep into its expansion efforts on Orchard Street.
Earlier this month, we reported that the cramped Austrian eatery had officially outgrown its space and already began preparations to annex the adjacent store at 77 Orchard. Plywood was constructed for the window frame, with paper gracing the glass. All while Cafe Katja itself remained open. Well, that’s gonna change very soon.
A sign pasted in the door of 79 Orchard informs patrons that the restaurant is closing imminently for roughly one month. It reads, in part:
Cafe Katja is expanding!
We will be closing to complete renovations sometime near the end of April and plan to re-open by the end of May.
We feel very lucky and grateful to have gained all your trust, support and friendship over the past few years and want to reassure you that we won’t be making any drastic changes. More seating, another bathroom, and windows that open, that’s about it.
We hope to see some of you before we close and are really looking forward to having you all back when we’re up and running again!
Ownership secured approval from CB3 to alter their liquor license for the new room. Speaking of Austria…
