WICHITA — If the last information Michael Goens shared was "crazy news," as he declared, this news is even wilder.

Three months after Goens and Albert Conrad moved their Auntie Mae's Attic from Delano to 3,000 square feet at 9125 W. Central and added a restaurant, they're more than doubling their space.

"We just cannot keep up with the business," Goens says.

"When we first started this, it was just going to be (this) little, small thing. We did not anticipate that it was going to be quite this well received."

The made-from-scratch cooking and homey atmosphere at Auntie Mae's Attic & Cafe is a hit.

Goens thinks people have "really been yearning for that kind of mom-and-pop place ... as opposed to these big-box corporate places."

"This day and age we live in has become so corporate," he says. "It's so nice to be able to go out and talk to your customers and their families and their kids."

Goens says he often hears about how customers like the atmosphere and service.

"That makes such a big difference anymore."
