Customers at a Minneapolis restaurant stepped up to help pay for a big upgrade. The Birchwood Cafe made its goal of raising at least $100,000 for major improvements.

The cafe kicked off its Kickstarter campaign last month. The fundraiser closed Sunday night.

The grand total raised was $112,126.

The money will help add more seating, expand the kitchen and add a community room.
