After five months of extensive renovations, the café is finally ready to open to the public. Those who have been to the old Apple Pie Bakery Café may remember long lines of people waiting to either dine inside or grab food to go. Those lines have now been separated, allowing dine-in customers to be seated more quickly and take out customers to grab what they want and go. Table service has also been added so diners can avoid waiting in line behind customers trying to choose a dessert from the incredible menu of decadent pastries.
