Popular Springfield cafe to be closed Wednesday, Thursday for repairs

Un Mundo Cafe will be closed on Wednesday and Thursday this week for air conditioning repairs.

Repairs to AC are needed as a result of damage caused by a pipe that burst in late April, causing the cafe to close its door to visitors during its peak season.

“We’re back from the flood but the repairs continue,” a post of the cafe’s Facebook page said. “We will be closed this Wednesday and Thursday while the AC is worked on. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

A pipe burst in the Clark County Heritage Center, located in downtown Springfield at 117 S. Fountain Ave., on April 25, causing damage to floors and ceilings within both the heritage center and Un Mundo, which is located inside of the heritage center.

Water damage caused the heritage center and the restaurant to be closed for more than a month. However, thankfully, none of the museum’s gallery rooms, where some of the museum’s most valuable objects are located, sustained any damage.

Un Mundo held their grand reopening on June 7, which featured a new menu item- hot dogs.

According to the cafe, during the reopening the restaurant’s kitchen went through more than 225 hot dogs and had a line out the door for most of the evening.
