Electrical fire closes Rock Hill eatery indefinitely

An electrical fire Monday morning has temporarily closed The Yolk Cafe on Mount Gallant Road.

The Yolk opened in 2012 and has a small — but growing — online audience of nearly 2,500 Facebook fans.

But the restaurant’s owners posted on their Facebook page Monday, “We just had a major electrical fire and will not be open…We will have to close our doors until we get everything sorted out.”

Word of a fire at the restaurant did not sit well with the restaurant’s Facebook audience.

“Was so looking forward to my first meal back from vacation being there – you do what you need to do,” said Boyd Jones, retired director of campus programs at Winthrop University.

“We love you guys too,” the owners’ later posted on Facebook. “We have made it this far together and will make it farther!”
