Actually the switch came in November but the new signage just went up yesterday:


Hans Pedr is named after one of the owner’s nephews who sadly passed away at young age.


Their facebook page says:

“We feed people. We’re a full service restaurant and cafe. Mornings offer up Hawthorne Fine Breakfast Pastry and Vigilante Coffee. DELISH! Lunch, come in for a panini, salad or great house made soups. Happy Hour on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-7. Dinnertime – Belgian beers, nice wine selection and hearty yummy meals. Thats what we do. When you think you’re done, check out the dessert case. House made chocolates, mousse cakes and an array of pastries make it hard to stop at just dinner. Dessert is a must.”

Lots more info on their website, here.

    My haterade for new restaurants today must be strong. If you ever use the world “delish” to describe your place, I will never visit your establishment.

      Also “yummy”. I do not respond well to marketing that addresses me as if I were 8 years old.

        Tried it over the weekend and thought the savory waffle and eggs brunch dishes were both “yummy” and “delish.” Then again, I’m not Tom Sietsema, just some doofus- but do I think they’re being genuine, not patronizing!

      It doesn’t say small-plate, artisanal, or call itself a ‘concept’ so its +3 in my book. To me it comes across as an owner being enthusiastic about their business, not crass marketing speak, but then again I didn’t drink my haterade this morning.

    LOLCat cafe! You will always live on in our hearts, along with Pepito’s, Sketchy Safeway, and Old Big Wong.

    I want to offer a big thanks to the former owners and wish them the best of luck in Taiwan!

    I really hope this does well!

    It looks nice, and I’ll check it out, but I for one miss Localat.

      I used to stop by Locolat frequently for their terrific hot chocolate (and the iced equivalent during summer), and occasionally for lunch. I stopped when they became so busy that it was difficult to get counter service or find a table. I hadn’t even realized they had changed ownership. I got along well with Niels and his wife and wish them well. Perhaps I’ll try the new version if they’re not too crowded. The place is really hampered by their tiny space.
