Roots Cafe, at 8 W. Gay St. in West Chester, seats 17 "when we push it," says owner Dan Cellucci.

That will change in late May or early June when Cellucci moves the sustainable-focus cafe two blocks into 133 E. Gay St., the former longtime home of Gilmore's.

Cellucci says the new location will seat 35 inside and 30 outside. It will be accompanied by an even stronger emphasis on local ingredients and suppliers, he says, and will lead to dinner service later in the week.

Meanwhile, Chester County records show that Peter Gilmore sold the building last month for $375,000.
