Real Estate Report: Cafe in the works for Deering Oaks Castle


PORTLAND (WGME) - The CBS 13 Real Estate Report has learned the city of Portland is in final negotiations with a restaurant to create a new cafe at the Deering Oaks Castle.

Right now the city is working on the details of a contract with the operators of Tiqa in Portland to open up a cafe in this 1894 building.

It was originally built as a warming hut for ice skaters at Deering Oaks Park.

In an effort to create a destination for visitors, the city solicited plans for the space, and decided the couple behind Tiqa is the right fit.

This is not a done deal.

The lease details are still in the works, and approval from city council is still needed.

Tiqa hopes to open the cafe by May.
