Auntie Mae's Attic to move west and become Auntie Mae's Attic & Cafe

WICHITA — Auntie Mae's Attic has "crazy news."

That's according to Michael Goens, who owns the Delano antique shop with Albert Conrad.

"We have decided that we want to kind of change the focus of our business a little bit," Goens says.

They're leaving 800 square feet at 1301 W. Douglas for more than 3,000 square feet at 9125 W. Central, which is a block west of Tyler. They'll use part of the new space for a restaurant.

Goens says they feel like being on the west side is "going to be a better fit for us."

The new space will be ready, following some remodeling, in early June.

With the addition of the restaurant, the business will be known as Auntie Mae's Attic & Cafe.

The restaurant will feature home-style meals and a soda fountain.

"We just got tired of everything really kind of being the same," Goens says of other restaurants.
