Cafe La Cave reopens following roof collapse

The heavy snow proved to be too much for a restaurant and banquet hall near O'Hare. The roof caved in at Café la Cave along Mannheim Road in Des Plaines. This Chopper 7 HD image is from Wednesday morning, March 6, 2013.

Cafe La Cave Banquet Hall and Restaurant in Des Plaines is back open Friday after part of its roof collapsed in the snow storm earlier this week.

Fire officials think a build-up of snow on the flat roof caused the roof to cave in on the south end of the building destroying the hall's Baby Grant Ballroom, sprinkler system and pipes.

Crews began demolishing the south end of the building Friday morning.
