When Keith B. Rhein opened Off the Avenue Cafe in West Lawn in 2007, he never meant to create a trendy spot for dinner.
His focus was to create a great cafe for breakfast and lunch.
But because there was a greater demand for dinner, Rhein gave the customers what they wanted.
Rhein is trying the breakfast and lunch idea once again, opening a second location: Off the Avenue Cafe Downtown.
The new cafe is on the first floor of the M&T Building, which is owned by developer Alan Shuman, president of Shuman Development Group.
