DeWitt police investigate burglary at Mother’s Cupboard after employees find historic restaurant burglarized overnight

DEWITT, NY (WSYR-TV) – Mother’s Cupboard, the iconic restaurant located at the intersection of James Street and Thompson Road, opened Monday night after workers discovered the building had been broken into and possibly robbed.

A DeWitt police spokesperson confirms to NewsChannel 9 that his officers responded to dinner Monday morning and launched a burglary investigation.

The front vestibule door and window, the vestibule door in the restaurant and a back door were found broken, according to restaurant workers.

The owner tells NewsChannel 9 that nothing of significance was taken because he does not store anything of value or keep any large sums of cash in the restaurant. Altogether, it looks like a few quarter dollars were taken.

Employees say DeWitt police were called to investigate Monday morning.

The restaurant opened shortly after the glass was cleaned and cardboard was put in place of the missing windows.

Mother’s Cupboard is popular with locals and known to visitors. He was made famous by Travel Channel host Adam Richman on his show “Man vs. Food.”

An employee started a GoFundMe page to help the restaurant make repairs and install a CCTV system to prevent future threats.
