Marco's Cafe

Construction is under way at the new location of Marco's Cafe in West Hollywood. When this store is completed the cafe will move in, then construction will begin on the remodel of the current Marco's Cafe transforming it into the new location of Marco's Trattoria.
Jose Anguiano is the superintendant on the job and came to Bonura Building two years ago from Marmol/Radziner. Jose was the superintendant on the Intelligentsia coffee house prior to Marco's, with his dry sense of humor and quick wit, Jose has brought comic relief to Bonura Building.
Marco's Cafe and Marco's Trattoria are both design/build projects by Bonura Building, designed by CJ Bonura and Tm Gratkowski. More photos will be posted when the project is completed.
