What's the meaning of “Candle” in Candle Cafe®?
Bart Potenza founded Candle Cafe® in a location previously occupied by a landmark health food store and juice bar. The owners of that famous institution had followed a nightly ritual of lighting candles to bless their establishment. Bart decided to honor that tradition in naming his restaurant.
