Simple Superfood Cafe

Off 53rd Street there is a new restaurant in town, but it is much different than any other place in the Quad Cities.

While there are some things I always hire tradesmen to handle, I do a lot of the work myself. I enjoy it and it also cuts down on expenses. One of my secret weapons in this mission is the Habitat for Humanity Restore.
