WICHITA — For east-siders who have been patiently waiting, Le Monde Cafe finally is opening on their side of town.
Mohamad Krichati has owned the Le Monde Cafe & Deli at 602 N. West St. for 15 years.
For all those years, diners have requested that he open an east-side location. But Krichati already had a second job as an engineer at Cessna Aircraft. He was laid off in June, though, so he thought this is the time to open a second Le Monde.
He and business partner Imad Youssef will open in the former Nouvelle Cafe space at 3101 N. Rock Road.
