Towns Coffee Shop Gutted

When I came home this morning there were flashing lights uptown. The Rumor Mill coffee shop has been gutted by fire during the night.

 

It is a shame to see such damage.This building had the original tin ceiling that was beautiful.,The site has always been a cafe ,and the only one in town. At one time St Charles Cafe would draw ppl from surrounding communities and was quite busy. It closed for a few years, and the new owners tried to start a more big city trendy type business with internet cafe,hoping to draw ppl from the interstate.They had frequent ads for staff , and couldn't seem to keep help. We didn't do much business ourselves, as we found the food a bit high priced, portions small and service poor.I wonder now if they will rebuild?
