This is a big bummer but there is a light at the end of the tunnel! A popular restaurant in Virginia, Minnesota has shared that they are closed until further notice.

The good news is that this closure is just temporary. The restaurant will be reopening at some point in the near future but will remain closed for now.

Saigon Cafe Temporarily Closed

Staff shared the news on Wednesday (May 1st), sharing that one of the owners, who is also the cook, needs to travel to be with his mother right now, who is very ill.

While staff didn't give an exact reopening date, they did say the restaurant will likely be closed for around a month. They thanked everyone for their love and support as well.

I know in small towns like Virginia, the staff at these restaurants can become like family. These locally-owned restaurants also become staples in the community. We are wishing for a good outcome for staff and owners.
