Café Coco looking for a new location

Café Coco, which has been located at 3705 N. Dirksen Parkway for nearly six years, is now looking for a new location.

Owner Connie DiCenso said that in March of this year, a health inspector questioned the adequacy of the kitchen 

hood. After an inspection by the county’s mechanical engineer, the property owner was issued a citation. However, DiCenso said that the landlord would not agree to make the improvements that the county was requiring, and so on Oct. 8 she notified customers that the business was closed.

Café Coco served breakfast, lunch and dinner but DiCenso is perhaps best known for her pies. She operated Coco Pies for a number of years before opening a full-service restaurant.

DiCenso said she has started looking for a new location and hopes to remain nearby. “I love the north end, and I had picked that location for that very reason. No decisions have been made to date,” she said.  “My goal is to be baking in time for the holidays.”
