Washington Avenue Belgian restaurant Broken Spoke Cafe is on fire. KHOU reporter Jeremy Desel tweeted the picture of the Houston Fire Department on the scene. Eating Our Words tweeted that the fire did more damage to a neighboring home than the restaurant itself.
The restaurant was recently sold after co-owner Catherine Duwez left to open her new project Cafe Brussels. Co-owner Roy de la Garza wrote a farewell post on the restaurant's Facebook page that lead some to think the restaurant was closing, but b4-u-eat reported it had not.
