Central Cafe Celebrates Grand Re-Opening in Hawarden

Central Café in Hawarden held its “Grand Reopening” today with a ribbon cutting ceremony. It was back on Dec. 26, 2021, a late-night fire destroyed Central Café, but through hard work and support from the community, the café is now able to reopen its doors.

And although the Central Café building, which the restaurant had been in for nearly 50 years, was destroyed by the fire, the business itself was able to keep going while they rebuilt. Local restaurants and businesses such as Rooster’s Midwest Steakhouse and the Hawarden Bowling Alley, and the Golf Course all welcomed Central Café into their facilities to continue serving breakfast to the community.

Now after more than a year of rebuilding, the restaurant will be able to reopen at its original location.
