SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - Two eateries in South Orange, Noodlefan and K Kakes Cakery, have been closed recently, and there is not much information about when, or if, they will re-open.
Noodlefan, located at 14 Academy St., has been closed for about a month, with a sign on the door indicating they plan to re-open. The sign reads "to our valued customers temporarily closed for staffs reorganization, new management, food & menu upgrade." The sign also stated "sorry for your inconvenience."
Bob Zuckerman of the South Orange Village Center Alliance said by email that Noodlefan had originally stated that they would be closed for "renovation and re-organization," but that both he and their landlord have been trying unsuccessfully to reach them to find out more about when they plan to re-open.
Noodlefan South Orange opened in 2016, and is part of a chain of seven restaurants in New Jersey and New York.
K Kakes Cakery, located in the Third & Valley building at 165 Valley St., has been closed for less than a month, but there is no sign on the door indicating why they are closed, or how long the restaurant will be closed.
K Kakes just held their grand opening in May, and is owned by local South Orange residents.
Neither Noodlefan or K Kakes has any information online about plans to re-open, or why they have been closed, and neither could be reached for comment.
