It appears there's a new cafe in Planning for a Certificate of Appropriateness for a new coffee house/cafe in the El Cortez. See below:

CAFE JEFE - 239 W 2ND ST

A request has been made for a Certificate of Appropriateness to allow for: 1) replacement of the entry door; 2) installation of two 6-inch louvered kitchen exhaust vents; 3) replacement of a boarded-up former window with a walk-up window; 4) reinstallation of a service door; 5) addition of a painted metal louver vent to replace a boarded-up former window. The subject property is located at 239 West Second Street and is on the Local Register of Historic Places.

This is the same Cafe Jefe here, located on Lakeside Drive and reported here by ReReno2.
