Crown Heights Eatery Lakou Cafe Bounces Back After Break-In with Donation from Local Leaders

With the help of the chamber, Lakou Cafe is back to serving Haitian cuisine at their restaurant. The 195 Utica Ave. eatery is open every day from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.

From Brooklyn Paper: 

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce awarded Crown Heights eatery Lakou Cafe with a $5,000 check to help get the shop back on its feet after the business was broken into last month. 

According to cafe owner Cassandre Davilmar, her Haitian restaurant was devastated when someone broke into the shop overnight on May 19. Staff members showed up to work the next morning to find the glass door shattered and cash register gone.
