'Lunites' to gain more room soon
Die-hard denizens of Luna Bakery and Café will no longer have to brave the cold and drizzle in order to enjoy their crepes and pots de crème au chocolate. The popular spot at Fairmount and Cedar is small, and close to one-half of its available seating is on its outdoor patio. With only about 25 seats inside, panini munchers and kids eating cupcakes could be found seated outside even on the worst of days.
But there is good news for these dedicated Lunites. The café and bakery is expanding its indoor dining area. This is being accomplished by expanding into the space next door, walling off a portion of one of the dining rooms occupied by The Mad Greek.
Lunites can expect at least 20 more seats. Construction is underway, and the new space is expected to be completed in early January.
