Unfortunately, the owner of our favorite old breakfast diner has passed away. Veli Arif (pictured on the left) died this week. I guess he just wasn't the same after he closed Veli's Kofy Kup in Oak Lawn. We used to drive over 50 blocks each Sunday morning to have breakfast at Veli's. Veli would always greet us warmly and walk us to our seats. The diner was always packed for breakfast, and it seemed like you knew everyone around you even though you never met them before.

Veli's obituary.
