2000 Pancake Cafe Mural


The Mural was commissioned in 2000 by Andy Avalos, Weatherman, and former entrepreneur in Lemont for his restaurant, Pancake Cafe.

It graced the wall of the business even after being sold, although Mr. Avalos retained the rights to it. Unfortunately, because of the economy the restaurant was closed and the question of what would happen to the mural was troubling to many who had come to appreciate the mural and considered it part of Lemont.

On December 9, 2013 at a Lemont Village Board Meeting in Village Hall it was formally presented by Mr. Avalos to the Lemont citizens. Mr. Avalos expressed his emotional ties to Lemont and felt the mural belonged here. This was it’s home. It now graces the wall of the Village Board Room on the second floor.
