Aurora Colonial cafe closed, restaurant moved for breakfast and lunch
Aurora’s Colonial Cafe will close later this month, making way for a new upscale breakfast and lunch restaurant called SYRUP, company officials said on Sunday.
The February 24 closure of the 1961 W. Galena Road restaurant and creamery will leave only two Colonial Cafe locations in the suburbs, in Naperville and St. Charles.
Locations in Elgin and Crystal Lake were closed in 2018, one location in Algonquin was replaced with a SYRUP restaurant in July, and a second location in St. Charles was replaced with a SYRUP in October.
In a message to customers at Aurora Colonial Cafe on Sunday, company officials described SYRUP as “a modern farmhouse that meets luxury, breakfast and lunch.” It will include a full-service café-bar, freshly squeezed orange juice, and local meats and products.
Colonial Cafe employees will have the opportunity to work at SYRUP, the post said.
Customers with Aurora Colonial Cafe coupons or gift cards will be able to redeem them at other locations, officials said.
