Retro Orlando: The past life of the future Ace Cafe


Ace Cafe History

We’ve told you about Ace Cafe coming to downtown Orlando.

We were really excited to find a before and after picture of the Harry P. Leu’s industrial supply store in the Historic Orlando Facebook group. The 110-year-old building is expected to come back to life as part of Ace Cafe’s entertainment plaza. A sign on the property says they’ll be “Wide Open Spring 2015”, but we’re working on getting an update on that.

Retro Orlando is Bungalower’s nod to Throwback Thursday. We juxtapose historic pictures of Orlando with scenes from today. 

This before and after photo was made by Mike McGinness. The top photo is from the Orlando Regional History Museum. The bottom photo was taken by Eric Schmidt.
