  • March 19, 2020 - Owner Chrissy Benninger organized a gofundme fundraiser with the goal of raising $20,000. The website stated:
"Hello, everyone! As you all know, many restaurants in Charlottesville are closing temporarily because of COVID-19. We are one of them.....
That means we have no revenue, even though there are still bills to pay.....and I didn’t send my staff off like I would have wanted to. Plus, we need money to start back up again in a few months. Trying to get a loan or money from the government will take time that we don’t have.
We are asking our patrons and friends to help us off our last few bills, have money set aside to reopen and to help the staff in these trying times. I know it’s a lot to ask right now. Everyone is struggling or will be soon.
We hope to see you again soon! Pancakes and Benedicts for all!
Love to you, stay safe and take care of those around you.
