A Little Farewell Note



          What a crazy year this has been!!    With this COVID thing changing the way we are allowed to do business, it has been very challenging to stay in the game......As a matter of fact, all that time at home has made us realize that 40 years is long enough for us to be in business.....We had such a wonderful time at home playing in the garden, building a chicken coop, planting an orchard, that we have decided to retire at the end of October........Yes that is correct I am hanging up my apron for good!  We have been trying to sell the business for quite some time now and are tired of waiting for that to happen. We had decided to just close the doors and sell off everything and then to sell the land & building and just enjoy all the time we have remaining in this life at home with no more worries.

         But alas, my crew was not ready to retire so they have decided to keep things going until we can find the right person to  come in and buy the place. But with this decision comes some changes to the menus. They have decided to mainly focus on Bakery, Breakfast, Sandwiches, Burgers, Pizzas.  I am afraid that after  the Nov. 6th. prime rib, the Friday Night Specials will be coming to an end for now. We have had a lot of fun (and stress) putting together these Friday menus but without me to do the planning that is just not possible at this time. They are considering keeping up with the prime rib dinners once a month but we will have to see how it goes...   Give them a call to see what is on the menu just for encouragement & support anyway.   


        My family and I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has supported us over these 40 years. We feel really blessed to have been so successful in this little one-horse town and realize that none of this would have been possible without you and your support. So to all my friends over the years I say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!


       The other big news and most exciting to me is on November 9th., I will be getting two new knees!!

I have waited a long time for this day, and can't wait till next summer when I will be healed up and ready to Rock & Roll again. I feel a little sorry for my family as I am not the best patient and anticipate a lot of whining for the first few weeks. But with their support and them telling me to "quit whining and keep exercising",  I'll be back on my feet in no time at all. We are building a green house and buying kayaks to start our next journey in life. We have already built a new chicken coop and expanded our existing garden so we will have plenty to keep us busy. I really love and treasure all the relationships we have built up over the years and will miss all of you........

    So life will go on as usual at the café  (just without the grumpy old guy) and my staff is hoping and counting on everyone's continued support to keep them busy.  Maybe after I heal I can come back and do a dinner or two once in awhile.  Who knows what the future will hold.


                        Hope to see you soon…….Marty, Dayna, Cara & Crew!
