Just Loaf'n Gone Again...Going Mobile?

Just Loaf'n Cajun Cafe, previously located in Grant Park, and more recently on Roswell Road in Buckhead, has closed again. There may also be a location at 6124 Covington Highway in Lithonia but I was unable to confirm that as the phone goes straight to an individual's voicemail and there are no Yelp reviews. I do a lot for this site, but damn if I'm gonna drive over to that neck o' the woods to confirm a place is closed. The restaurant in Grant Park closed last September, and soon after there was word of them re-opening in Buckhead. With "coming soon" signs up forever, the restaurant had a soft opening in late December and a Grand Opening in late March. The Buckhead location was small, with limited parking, and I see this as the reason for their quick demise.

Strangely, upon further investigation of the business, I find that there are two separate websites, one, very professional with music and flash and another, with a more amateurish look and feel. The first site lists locations in Lithonia and Buckhead and says that they have one opening soon on Old National Hwy. The other site lists the Roswell Road (Buckhead) restaurant but also says "Now!!! We are Mobile.....Appearing at a variety of locations soon." I'm sure by now all you foodies know that Yumbii was just approved by the city of Atlanta for vending on streets, so I find it hard to believe Just Loaf'n is already approved to do the same. While they have not been updated with any consistency in the past, with multi-month gaps, I'd check Just Loaf'n's Twitter and Facebook page for updates. Who knows? Maybe they are "just" that good!

I spoke with the owner in at the Buckhead location last month and he stated that they would be closing that location and opening at a new location near Grant Park. He also said that it would be bigger than the original and serve daiquiris.

I heard that Paper Affair is opening on Roswell Road in the Fresh Market shopping center.

I miss the location on Boulevard and recently tried to get to the one on Covington. It isn't there.

I just got the word from my contact at DeKalb County Health department that the Lithonia store is closed.

BTW, the Old National Highway location closed last year when the roof fell in from the 500 year flood.

Thanks to all that have commented. It looks like the Covington Highway location is closed as well.
