Our Way Cafe Reopens Today

After a fire destroyed much of the interior over a year-ago, Our Way Cafe in Avondale Estates, reopens its doors today.  From the Avondale Estates “City Happenings” newsletter…

Our Way Cafe celebrates its grand re-opening Monday, April 4th with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:45 am followed by the doors opening for the lunch crowd at 11:00 am. The 25-year-old restaurant located in the Twin Oaks Shopping Center at 2831 E. College Avenue has been closed since January 2010 due to a fire. The remodeled restaurant features a Tuscany-style decor with archways, polished concrete floors, and Italian sconces. There’s even a cool outside patio that features the handiwork of local artist Jason Smith of Smithworks Iron and Design. Congratulations to Owner Eva Roswall for keeping the faith and for keeping Our Way in Avondale Estates!

Thanks to Valerie for forwarding!


Our Way Cafe Preparing For February Open

Patch reports that Our Way Cafe on East College Ave, which suffered from a serious fire a year ago, is planning for a February reopening.

The popular eatery, known for its southern-style cooking and walls filled with memorabilia has a new look, a new menu and will soon be serving beer and wine.

“We’re evolving with the times by responding to people’s changing tastes and preferences in food and the way it’s prepared,” said owner Eva Roswall.

An all-organic salad bar with homemade dressings signals the biggest change.

Fire Damages “Our Way Cafe”; Recovery Fund Opened

This past Saturday, “Our Way Cafe” in the Avondale Estates’ Twin Oaks strip mall on E. College Avenue suffered damage from a fire caused by a clothes dryer motor.  Tweets from @stacyreno and @danayoung, sent Dave and Geoff to the scene where they documented the damage.

While initial eyewitness accounts reported minimal damage, Dave followed up yesterday with news that the “kitchen and walk-in areas were destroyed and smoke damage throughout.”

Dave also reported yesterday that a “fire recovery fund” had been opened at Decatur First Bank.  Here are the details from Rob Elrod…

We have set up a Fund for Ava Marie’s Our Way at Decatur First.

Please ask folks to make checks payable to: Our Way Cafe Recovery Fund with an ATTN: Ms. Ann Berg on the checks. The checks can be sent to the bank at 1120 Commerce Drive, Decatur, GA 30030.
