While this image invokes some levity to the situation, it is with a heavy heart we must announce that during this time, for the safety of our staff, guests, and family that Café 44 has decided to go on hiatus.

Please, during this period, do what you can to support your small businesses. Buy local groceries, utilize curbside from those available, give your local service industry professionals a solid air-hug (keep that social isolation though). Keep up with @visitalexva @thechamberalx for available restaurants/companies open during this time.

Our management team has our thumb on the pulse of this issue, and will adjust as needed. As soon as we are able, we’ll be looking to put a @joeq_mixology cocktail in hand, a @mrs.n_lewis dish in your belly, and just listen to your wildest stories of making it through.

We miss you, appreciate you, and thank you immensely for being with us these years, and look forward to offering you many more of the same.

Cheers, and keep those spirits high!

‘Til next time,
Café 44 Team

Super nice place ~ I had a sandwich
A very Merry Christmas to us! Cafe 44’s new Red Velvet Pancakes are out of this world. Well done Chef and team !!! 💥🎉🥂
Sad morning.
I attended happy hour at Cafe 44 last night. I had the house made focaccia bread- and loved it so much I bought some to bring home! I gave my daughter a piece, then put it (stupidly) on the lower shelf in my freezer. My daughter was oddly quiet this morning... and when I walked in this is what I found! #Cafe44CausesItsFirstTantrum #ShesAFan #18MonthsAndIsObsessedWithFocaccia #MotherOfTheYear #WhatSaturdaysAreMadeOf
The curry chicken salad was amazing! Looking forward to it being a regular menu item.
Thanks to Joe and the gang for great food and service this week.
