Green Lake’s Bongos Cafe May Have To Change Its Name

October 13, 2017 6:20am

Earlier this summer Bongos Cafe posted a Facebook post that they may need to change their name. It turns out Green Lake’s Bongos Cafe got the attention of Gloria Estefan’s Florida restaurant with the same name.

While both restaurants serve Cuban/Caribbean food, the two couldn’t be more different. Estefan’s establishment in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando includes seating for 550 – a far cry from the Green Lake Bongos, a former gas station with seating for maybe 50?

Since it sounds like a name change is possible, but not a given, we asked Bongos to keep us posted while they work with Estefan’s lawyers.

And that potentialĀ name change Facebook post that we mentioned earlier, by the way, produced more than 60 comments of (Green Lake’s) Bongos Cafe fans sharing ideas for new names – from Turquoise Deck to The People’s Cafe of Cuba. Check out the August post here, someĀ are pretty hilarious.
