This is an amazing blessing for this Menlo family! If you’d like to pick up a bracelet or make a donation to help pay for other costs for Ayden and his family (gas, living expenses, etc) you can stop by the cafe. Let’s help support our community! #MenloStrong

Angels, your generosity continues to be a blessing to the foundation and to our sponsored families. Believing that God will continue to provide, we have accepted our 72nd sponsored child, Ayden Wood. Ayden is 14 years old and was just recently diagnosed with Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis (CTX). CTX is an extremely rare genetic disease that causes the body to improperly break down fats, causing vital organs to slowly shut down. There are only 300 cases of this in the United States. Ayden will begin treatment in August. Thanks to your generous support, Tori’s Angels will pay for all of Ayden’s medical expenses not covered by insurance. His family shares, “I cannot express the gratitude that my family has already for Toris Angels!” Please keep Ayden and his family in your prayers - thank you.

**FYI**
We will not be open this evening, 7/31. This is for this Friday ONLY.
Also, starting tomorrow, we will no longer be open on Saturday evenings. We just didn’t have enough business to warrant being open.
In the next month or so, we will re-evaluate how things are going and the potential of opening for Sunday brunch. We will keep everyone posted on this site!

Hey everyone! Our hood vent is out of commission at the moment. We did our best to get through lunch but the smoke and heat are getting unbearable and starting to affect the dining room. We are going to close for the remainder of the day and not reopen this evening. They are working on it now and hopefully can get it fixed and we can air the place out. Thank you for all of your understanding. We appreciate you all! Stay cool and we'll see you next week!

Great burger and sides for Rose Acres today.
My mom, Helen Peterson & I, enjoyed many a Sunday brunch after church, when I could make it home to Casey & take her. Loved it!
Do you know when liver and onions will be the special?
Joke of the Day at the Menlo Cafe
Great food for a great price! One hour left....go get yours, I got mine!!!
Max and I had lunch there Thursday. Wonderful food and we were both so full. We both had the Meat loaf special and it even came with desert. We will be going back.
Hi folks! I am one of the new owners of the Menlo Cafe along with my husband Scott, our daughter (Morgan Judkins Hale), and my parents (Linda Judkins and Timothy Judkins). We are excited for all the changes happening at the cafe. The remodeling is coming along great and we are shooting for a target opening date of September 17th. We are planning an open house right before we open so we can introduce ourselves and meet everyone. Watch for updates on opening day and for more details on the open house!! We are SO excited to get open and to meet everyone!! If you have questions or comments before then, do not hesitate to get in touch with one of us!
