Baltimore Avenue Diner Reopens After Fire at Elena’s Soul

It was such heartbreak for the Cedar Park neighborhood of University City when Elena’s Soul, a restaurant, bar and community gathering spot at 49th and Baltimore, burned down on Christmas Eve last year.

Compounding the tragedy, the Cedar Park Cafe and Gary’s Nails, two adjoining businesses, suffered damage as well and had to close indefinitely.

But now…triumph! Cedar Park Cafe is open again. West Philly Local has more. (Photo by Mike Lyons.)
