Louisa’s Cafe Bakery , 2379 Eastlake Ave., was hit by burglars sometime between 2 and 4 a.m. on Monday morning.
Alcena Plum, owner of Louisa’s, says the thieves entered through a front window. The burglars took the cafe’s safe and also ransacked the area around the cash register. The amount of the loss was not disclosed.
If you have any information about the burglary, contact the burglary section Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct at 206-684-5740.
Louisa’s is open today despite the burglary but they won’t have much cash until the banks open. So, for the moment, they’re asking for exact change or credit cards in payment.
Plum says she was having a sense of deja vu this morning after learning of the burglary. Three years ago, when she was considering buying the restaurant, she came to work a shift to learn about the place. The bakery had been broken in to that night as well.
