As we reported on February 9, Charlie’s Flame Broiled Burgers closed their doors on February 12 after just over a year in their location at 2608 S Judkins St. Thankfully Madison Valley resident Michael McGloin has purchased the building, is giving it a quick update with new interior paint and signage, and is opening Judkins Street Cafe in the location on Tuesday, February 15.
McGloin said his chef, Steel Orr, has worked in the restaurant business off and on for decades and will be creating classic comfort food, including homemade soups, natural beef burgers, mac ‘n cheese, and lasagna. They will also have veggie options. The Judkins Street Cafe menu will also offer selected sweets and pastries in the morning. The cafe will have a minimal set menu and offer multiple specials that change depending on what is in season and what can be purchased locally. The restaurant will be serving La Panzanella breads and offer Cafe Vita drip and french press coffees, but no espresso at this time.
“We’ll see,” said McGloin. ”We’ll see what the neighborhood wants and adjust the menu and service accordingly.”
Judkins Street Cafe will have a soft opening on Tuesday, February 15. Their regular hours will be Tuesday-Friday, 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, and they will be closed on Mondays.
