June 10, 2019 – Hartford, WI – A new restaurant is coming to Downtown Hartford at 48 N. Main Street.
The two-story building, originally constructed in 1884, is located between Creative License and Faith and Giggles
. The last business that occupied the building was the ‘Wa Wa’ Chinese restaurant.
“The Wa Wa building has been vacant for around a decade,” said Scott Henke, executive director of Hartford Area Chamber of Commerce.
Two sales are disclosed for the parcel in the Washington County property tax database. The first sale in 1999 with Tommy Lin listed as the previous owner. The second sale was recorded in January 2019, listing the current owner as Vicente Flores-Martinez.
The 2018 assessed value for the property was $233,000.
The Cafe serves American Mexican food, carries a medium-priced menu and is open daily from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. Click HERE

Flores-Martinez indicated the new Hartford restaurant will have the same name, menu, and hours as the Evansville location. He said the reason he was drawn to Hartford was because the city has a “reasonably priced business district.”
He also said the Evansville location will remain open and this will be his second location.
The grand opening of the Hartford restaurant will be sometime in July or August.
