The official ribbon cutting for True Nature Foods at the Heartland Cafe took place this evening. For those of us who have been going to the Heartland for a long time, the changes are pretty dramatic, but the space looks great and i wish both True Nature and the Heartland much success in their new partnership.
When Whole Foods opened in the old Dominick's on Broadway, True Nature Foods decided to make their escape from Edgewater to the greener pastures of Rogers Park. They set up shop in what was formerly the main dining room of the Heartland.
The bar area in the middle of the Heartland appears to have survived the renovations without any noticeable changes.
The Heartland's new dining room is located where the gift shop used to be. Although i am now wondering where i will go if i ever need a Che Guevara teeshirt, it's a cozy and pleasant-looking space.
Ald. Joe Moore was on hand for the ribbon cutting and Follow Me on Friday event.
The crowd gathered outside on this cool but beautiful May evening for the official ribbon cutting.
Welcome to the neighborhood,
True Nature Foods!
