From 1993-present, the Cafe Hue has occupied the storefronts at 312-314 2nd Avenue South; operated by a former South Vietnamese Air Force pilot and his wife, it serves dishes developed in the central part of Vietnam, near the old imperial capital of Hue. The cafe closed recently two years for remodeling.

This three-story commercial building was clad in buff-colored brick with rusticated stone trim. Three arched windows on the second floor were trimmed in stone. The use of brick was a lower-cost alternative to walls of rusticated stone, popular during the Richardsonian Romanesque (1880s-1890s) period.
