Breakaway Café customers and Bob Rice, the former owner who sold the cafe in 2016, have long admired renowned Glen Ellen artist Dennis Ziemienski’s paintings and murals displayed within Breakaway.

Those murals in the rounded corners over the booths are completely removable and can flatten out – and thus Rice is hoping to sell the murals before the restaurants new owners James Hahn and Mila Chanamé, of the Sunflower Caffe, close Oct. 8 for remodeling, meaning completely changing the one-time Lyons restaurant space. (The Hahns have even been selling the little red lamps on the tables.)

Rice simply doesn’t have room for Ziemienski’s fabulous works of art depicting western history; he hates to part with them, and would prefer to sell them to someone local. For his part, Ziemienski says he will help deliver them to the buyer.
