The restaurant has leased the former La Catrina building at 1501 NW 23rd, which is just west of Classen. La Catrina closed a few months ago.
The existing structure – originally built as a Captain D's in the mid 80's – is currently being remodeled and Syrup hopes to open in June.
The building will see a complete overhaul, with the vaulted ceiling opened up and new modern décor. There is also a patio on the south side of the building facing 23rd.
Syrup operates as a nonprofit with proceeds going to the mission causes of its owners, who live in Cape Town, South Africa and have the funds to build an orphanage and provide clean water, among other causes.
As the new location will be larger will a full kitchen, Syrup hopes to expand on its current menu offerings which include traditional breakfast items, sweet potato pancakes, chicken and waffles, and soups and salads.
Also, the Uptown location will have a liquor license which will allow for brunch cocktails.
Similar to the original Norman site at 123 E. Main, the new location will be open 7AM to 1PM Monday through Friday and 7AM to 2PM on the weekend.
Syrup will join the thriving breakfast and brunch scene in Central OKC, with Hatch, Aurora and Sunnyside Diner opening in the last year and enjoying large crowds.
