The Summit is now the Chez Elle Crepenie and Coffee House. Front facade looks nice; no idea how much or if any of the interior still exists.

The restaurant’s website is http://chezelle.homestead.com/ . From the pictures it looks like it’s all new inside (probably wasn’t much left when they bought the building) but it’s done up very nicely.
