Ron's is gone. Introducing Vandy's

Well, the day has come. Ron went back to school and sold his cafe.

I met the new owners today, Vicky and Tandy. They combined their names and called it Vandy's.

They've completely re-done the interior, and it's much nice than Ron's was. Everything is clean and new, fresh paint, no more candy machine filled with super old, sun-bleached M&Ms. It looks a lot classier inside. They've removed some of the awkward 2-seat booths and replaced them with high-top tables. The booths have new upholstery and the tables have been replaced.

The menu has been condensed to a single sheet, double-sided. I asked specifically about the mini-burgers and the turkey club because I know those were community favorites. I didn't get a clear answer on the burgers except for you can still get six, and they're "bigger" than Ron's were, but the turkey club sounds like it survived: "Yes, we use fresh roasted turkey on it, not lunch meat."

I think it'll be a fine replacement for Ron's.

    Yep, breakfast is still cheap. Three of us ate there today, and walked out fat and full, for $18 + change.

    Only been there a few times but they were all great. Good luck to Ron in furthering his education and whatever he pursues. That sounds like a pretty impressive change in the short amount of time since I was there for ICSP and I look forward to checking out the new place. I'm sure they'll be feeding a good chunk of the IC community for some time to come.:D

    Looking forward to checking out Vandy's at next visit. Ron will be missed, but I'm happy to hear the place has been cleaned up. (that candy machine bugged the crap out of me).

    The miniburgers will be taste tested, and I'm sure it will find its way to Icrontic history.

    Heads would have rolled if they took away my turkey club. Best breakfast.

    I wish Ron the best of luck.

    Vandy's sounds like a fine replacement. I look forward to trying their breakfasts.

    Vandy's became Bismillah Kabob and Curry several years ago. It's a Bengali restaurant and quite good.
