Former Linda’s Cafe Building Torn Down on Lee Highway

The former Linda’s Cafe along Lee Highway has been given the figurative People’s Elbow.

Already down for the count and set to be replaced by a new Bob and Edith’s Diner location, the building that housed Linda’s is now no more. Gone is the one-time home of “excellent burgers” and an extra-spicy Twitter account.

Demolition of the building has been underway since at least Monday, after workers fenced off the lot in preparation for the project, according to tipsters.

As of this article’s publication time, a rep for Bob and Edith’s Diner did not respond to a request for an update on the new location, the anticipated opening of which has been delayed for months.
