Universal’s restaurants are quick and full-service restaurants that offers everything from snacks like churros, soft pretzels, popcorn, and soda, to elegant gourmet cuisine. However, one popular and iconic offering has now been completely removed.

Universal Orlando recently announced that it would be closing The Classic Monsters Cafe after more than 20 years at the theme park. Now, the snack bar near the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit has been completely demolished.

Twitter account @bioreconstruct shared a photo of the removed offering.

With the popular offering gone, many Universal fans are wondering what might be next for the area. Universal hasn’t announced yet, but the expectation is that a Minions-themed attraction is slated to take over the area that used to be Shrek 4-D. In the place of the Classic Monsters Cafe, a Minions Cafe is rumored to be built. As far as the snack bar, it will most likely return in some fashion, also with a Minions or Illumination theming to match the updates that are happening at the theme park.

Are you going to miss eating at The Monster Cafe?
