But a fresh look and a new experience in dining is coming to the same location. The owner of White Street Cafe has a host of healthy dishes to serve up to the community.
White Street Cafe, which is located in the Trolley Barn, 11 S. White St., is expected to open this fall. The owner, Paula Modjeski, saw the location as an opportunity to tap into the charm that attracts customers to shop in downtown Frankfort. The cafe also features an outside eating area for a quick bite to eat or a place to lounge after a walk on Old Plank Road Trail.
She contacted the village shortly after the Frankfort Meats and Deli closed, said Zach Brown, planning and building supervisor. Crews have been working steadily on the store, giving it a new design and a whole new look. The restaurant is expected to open sometime in October.
But Modjeski isn't waiting for the grand opening to get into the spirit of downtown Frankfort. Already she has plans to open a portion of the restaurant for a fundrasing benefit for the Lincolnway Special Recreation Association. The 2nd Annual Wined-ing Through Historic Downtown Frankfort, there will be wine tasting on Sept. 29.
