Sunday marks the last day of business for Van Dyke Café at its original Lincoln Road prime spot.
The popular eatery has revealed plans to reopen a scaled down version of itself.
The Van Dyke’s website announces owners are trying to find a new locale:
“We are working very hard with our landlord to find a space within the Van Dyke complex so that we can keep the Van Dyke Café spirit alive by opening a smaller version, hopefully sometime in the spring!”
Two decades after it opened at 846 Lincoln Road, the corner eatery has been a staple on the busy walkway.
The historic Van Dyke building, which was built in 1924 by developer Carl Fisher, sold to a subsidiary of Crown Acquisitions of New York for $16 million last summer, prompting the closing.
On Sunday, the restaurant will host a special celebration beginning at 5 p.m.
Patrons are invited to stop by for a complimentary toast.
