Briarfield Cafe in Maumee opened for sit-down service Thursday after it suffered a string of bad luck since Sept. 21, 2019, when smoke damage caused by a fire in JoJo’s Pizza forced the entire Briarfield Plaza to shut down for months.

The cafe was completely renovated and opened back up on March, 3. Then, on March, 9, it was forced by the state to shutter its restaurant again because of the coronavirus, though the cafe remained open for takeout.
