The wait is finally over for all-day breakfast fans as the popular neighborhood diner the Cedar Park Cafe reopened Thursday. Located at 4912 Baltimore Ave., the cafe had been closed for many months after the Christmas Eve 2012 fire destroyed Elena’s Soul Lounge next door and poor demolition job of their building caused extensive damage to the adjacent cafe building. It took a few months of renovations and uncertainty during which the cafe openedĀ another location, in the Overbrook section of West Philadelphia.

No word yet whether Elena’s Soul or Gary’s Nails salon, which also was damaged by the demolition, will ever reopen.

Cedar Park Cafe hours are: Monday to Friday 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.

    Is the Overbrook location still open? Or did they close it to re-open the one on Baltimore Ave?

    Thank goodness! I love this place and was so dissapointed when they were forced to close. I’ll be there every weekend starting this weekend.
