In the kitchen cabinets in the grey kitchen cafe in the Mels neighborhood, the bright white cabinets of a once-popular restaurant are being replaced with a darker color.
The kitchen is part of a transformation at the cafe, which has been in the building for almost two decades.
The change is one of the latest examples of the shift in the neighborhood that has led to a boom in restaurants, bars and restaurants that serve food for a living.
Mels, which opened in 2004, was the only place to eat at the Melson House in the Old Town section of the city and had been home to the Melsen family for more than a century.
It was a landmark of the neighborhood and the first establishment in the city to serve food on a kitchen level.
It has since moved to a newer building on the block.
A couple of years ago, the Mells family bought the building and moved it to a new location.
The family plans to open a new restaurant next month in the space that is being used for the cafe.
But, the restaurant owners said, it’s the new owner who is keeping the doors open.
“The family is taking care of everything.
They are keeping the kitchen open and the dining room open, they are taking care in the kitchen and the kitchen is going to be cleaned up, so they are just doing the best they can,” said David Hock, a restaurant owner who owns Mels and has been running the cafe for nearly 20 years.
But the cafe owners say the change has brought a lot of changes to the neighborhood.
The restaurant is not open anymore.
There are no more tables.
The space is being turned into a lounge area.
There’s no more space for a bar.
There was a lounge, but the lounge is gone.
And now there’s no food to eat in the lounge.
The coffee shop and the bakery are gone, too.
There is no seating.
And the kitchen has been changed.
“I can’t even remember the last time I was in the cafe,” said Kristina Smith, a longtime Mels diner.
She said the kitchen was the place to get a quick meal.
“It was always the one place I could come and get my fix of breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Now, you can get your fix of everything, but it’s not in the same room as the kitchen,” Smith said.
Smith, who has been a diner for 15 years, said she’s never seen anything like it.
The new owners also say they want to make sure that the restaurant stays open.
They plan to open the cafe next month, with plans to have a full-service restaurant on the property.
“We are very proud of this building.
We want to be very happy with the people that are going to come here and we want to keep that tradition alive.
We will be a family business,” said John Hock.
