Starkville Cafe located on Main Street will be temporarily closing to make necessary upgrades to the building.

The eatery will close on Monday, Jan. 29 until Saturday, Feb. 2.

Owner of the Starkville Cafe John Peeples said with Starkville Cafe being an old building, it was just a matter of time before he had to make a few adjustments and improvements.

“Basically what we’re doing is just upgrading our electrical components of the restaurant to meet the needs of what we’ve got to have in the kitchen,” Peeples said. “There’s never a convenient time. Sometimes you’ve just got to do it.”

Peeples said he doesn’t anticipate the restaurant to be closed any longer than its announced time frame. In the event Starkville Cafe has to stay closed longer,

Peeples said he would notify customers via social media.

“We’re just doing a full upgrade,” Peeples said. “We’ll be back open real quick.”
