New Breakfast Restaurant Set for Pancake Factory Building
Owners have applied for a liquor license and, this week, asked city officials about selling homemade jams inside the 127th Street building.
A new brunch spot is in the works for the former Mr. G's Pancake Factory location.
Owners of the tentatively named "Mama’s Boy Café" plan to open at the 127th Street and Harlem Avenue location by Christmas. Their restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and alcohol, on the approval of a liquor license set to come before the Palos Heights' City Council for approval in December.
Owners plan to use locally sourced produce in their food, said Marisa Kolman, community development coordinator with the City of Palos Heights. Ownership also approached the city this week to see if any issues would come from selling homemade jams.
The building is currently undergoing a facelift on the inside.
"They’re completely remodeling the interior, floors, tables, seats," Kolman said. "They’re expanding the bar at the front and makng it nicer, sitting area.”
The owners, who didn't return a voicemail Tuesday, have previous experience in family-run restaurants.
Mr. G's closed in July. After its closing, another party was in the process of buying the lease on the property when that deal fell through.
