Vienna Cafe is now JG’s Cafe

We just recently learned that the Vienna Cafe (on the south side of Melrose Ave. just west of Fuller Ave.) is now called JG’s Cafe.  JG is John Ghaffari, the new Manager (owner?) of the cafe.  The sign on the front still says “Vienna Cafe.”  (This picture was taken earlier this afternoon.)

This is the new logo — on the menus and on their website and perhaps later on the front, perhaps in the similarly shaped space where it used to say “Sal’s:”:
Some or all of the menu appears to be the same as before.

If you learn anything about JG’s Cafe — how it came about and other details, please let us know by leaving a comment here.

    great to see so many food choices in our neighborhood! i think a new restaurant is opening up where the fabulous Purans on La Brea used to be (next to American Rag). Does anyone know what’s going on in that space??? Thanks!
