General Information:

This old cafe goes back to 1939 at least. It was at the corner of Maple and River Street and given an article I found I believe I have isolated it to the NW corner where the building for Westshore Community College sits as of 2023. There was once a drug store on the lower level and the restaurant was on the top floor. It was run by Pete Brokus at that time. I am not sure how long it lasted but it is long gone. I would say the building on the site today is not the original structure.
