Birds on the Roof Cafe at 550 N. Rock Road has been open for a year, but it’s been a tough one, said owner Jimmy Nguyen.
He and his wife, Thao Luu, have experienced many difficulties, he said, from construction problems to staffing issues. They had a few bad reviews from customers early on that they’ve been unable to recover from.
“We have been through a lot since the opening of our restaurant,” he said. “It has been a year since our opening and we still have not been able to reach the break-even point,”
Nguyen said the couple is giving the restaurant one more month and if things don’t improve, they’re going to close for good.
