Unconfirmed reports say Borrone's will remodel the Cedro site and incorporate it into the cafe. Remodeling will take several months, with an estimated spring opening.
Cafe Borrone, next to Kepler's bookstore, is Menlo Park's most popular gathering place. Roy Borrone opened the coffee house/restaurant in Redwood City in 1979, and later moved it to Menlo Park.
