"Good things coming" to old Dolce Casa spot in Ravenswood/ Lincoln Square

The old Dolce Casa Cafe spot at 4947 N Damen has a new lessee working diligently on the space.
The Ravenswood / Lincoln Square neighborhood is breathlessly waiting for an official announcement: What will replace Dolce Casa Cafe near Winnemac Park?  I was in withdrawal again today as Dolce was my "go to" spot for work and lunch when getting out of my home office. We're doing a full gut renovation of our kitchen so escape is necessary.

Luxury condos in the foreground next to the one story commercial space that is home to a laundromat, popular Over Easy brunch spot, a yoga studio, property management company, dry cleaners, liquor store and the new cafe coming soon. This retail spot near the park has lagged a bit compared to just a little south on Damen where new businesses have consolidated near improved Lawrence Ave.
The 4800 -5200 block of North Damen Avenue location near Winnemac Park and the CTA Damen Brown Line has exploded like many desirable areas on the north side.  Condo prices are high on North Damen at median price of $499,000 and new single family home construction in all directions selling for $1.1 million and up is the norm. 

Area neighbors like nothing more than supporting a new business!
