Cafe Catalina opens, and temporarily closes, their doors in Rigby

Cafe Catalina originally opened in June 2020 as a member of the new retail spaces along Farnsworth Way. Offering coffees, tea, breakfast and lunch items, owner Michael Fillmore has posted updates on his restaurant regularly to the local Rigby Facebook group.

Fillmore posted an update July 27 and 31 that they had closed temporarily due to faulty stucco that led to leaks in the restaurant through the walls.

Although the business opened again for takeout options, Fillmore once again took to Facebook Aug. 26 to report it was “too much of a burden to attempt to star open while construction” continued on the building. He went on to write that they would be reopening either once the issues were resolved or once they found a new location.
