Our evening cook, George, walking to work today and struck and killed by a truck. We are heart broken. He was a great guy and very easy to work with. Please lift his family and his girlfriend in your prayers.


So. Miss Melinda made peanut butter pie. Chocolate pie and a coconut pie. She also made chicken salad.

Do you feel she is trying to butter us up? Well, she is. Tomorrow will be her last day with us. She is moving out of the restaurant field. She loves us and it is going to be hard on her. She just wants to spend time with her kids. So pop in today or tomorrow, give her a hug, smile or just well wishes.

We thank you Melinda for the years of hard work. Good luck!!


Thank you Delaware County Health Board! You are always thorough and we appreciate the efforts to keep serving sanitary and safe. We also thank you for noticing the work no one sees. All the deep cleaning that is done daily and hours of cooking and cooling things properly. Another good job for the staff at 12th Street Cafe!!!!

We are deeply sad this week. We've lost Mr. Danny Thronburg. His spunk, fireball attitude and personality is already missed a great deal. Our staff is very close to a relative of Danny's. We pray for his family. Mainly second shift got the pleasure of going rounds with Danny. We shared so many laughs. And you didn't tell him to "have a good evening". Lol!!! He would tell you "don't tell me what @-&/&/@ damn day to have".

Elmer Thornboro who loved to cut up and smiled when he spoke has been missed as he had been home battling cancer. Many of our staff are long time friends of this family. Please keep them in your prayers.

Micheal Hughes. Very nice guy. Sat at our counter. His absence has not gone unnoticed. Praying for his loved ones.

And finally. Our dear Dr. Howard Searight. We will continue to miss him. Often in here twice a day. Always gracious. Always proper. Couldn't hear worth a darn, but he entertained any and all conversation. He knew what he wanted, where he wanted to sit and he loved his strawberry milkshake. This one also show our family. ❀️


We suffered some loss this week.

Danny Thornburg. Spunky, feisty, and funny. We loved him so very much. And he loved most of us. πŸ˜‰. This one was hard to take. He hadn't been feeling well, and had been absent. Such a familiar face for our evening crew. He is very missed. Some of our staff are close to his family. This one stung pretty hard.

Elmer Thornboro. Such a kind man. Always smiling. Our assistant manager grew up with his grandchildren. This is one felt deep in our family. He never met a stranger. Sometimes a little goofy, but a huge huge heart of gold. We want to hug all of you and make this pain go away.

Michael Hughes. He was kind. Sat at the counter and was a pleasure to be around. We were sorry to hear of his passing.

Dr. Howard Searight. An every day staple. Sometimes two times a day. Right up to the very end. The conversations I've personally had with him were unforgettable. He always entertained me. I know he did others as well. He loved his strawberry milkshakes. We knew it was coming but it is never easy. He was so strong, independent, and intelligent. We are still in shock.

If deaths happen in 3's, we are over quota. So everyone stay safe!!! We love you all.


We are running our biscuits and gravy today until we run out. This is a once in a while chance. Coke and get it.


PSA::: we will be closed from 2:30pm-4pm tomorrow June 1st. AEP is updating our electrical lines and we have to be shut down.


Our loved one has left us. Everett Colsten. He was 83. He was related and loved by several members of our staff. We also lost customer and friend Joshua Campbell way too soon. Please keep these families in your prayers.


Absolutely heart broken. Got the call lastnight that our dear friend Willie Caldwell had passed. This is devestating not just to us, but to our community. If you were struggling with an addiction, he would personally pull you out and see you get healthy. We have lost a saving grace. Please pray for everyone he has touched. For there is a long list of people grieving over this man.




Today is a very special day. It is our miss Kathy's birthday!!! So stop in and wish her a happy birthday. She will be there until 4.

The smell of spaghetti and/or lasagna fill the air. Ribs cooking in the oven due to be out at 4pm. So many things to feast on. Meatloaf is limited. Just made this morning. It has been a huge hit. Come join us. We also have gift certificates available for gifts.


I made fresh chicken and dumplings. Came off the stove top about an hour or so ago. Come get them.


I am so sorry to the group of karate kids lastnight. That was my fault. I dropped the ball. There was a miscommunication between my staff and I. I will somehow make it up to you.

When we are slow, and we feel the business day is done, we close. Sometimes we get busy at 4,5,6 and rarely a rush comes at 7. It's always good to call and reserve a table. I will make it a goal to better inform you as well as keep the doors open for when you arrive.


Biscuits just came out of the oven. Gravy just came off the stove top.


Please don't forget. We are opening from 10-2 today. Our family volunteered to come in and serve breakfast, lunch and thanksgiving dinner. For those that don't celebrate, cook or just have no one. We are here for you. Much love and happy Thanksgiving!

Every employee that has worked with us and actually had to work, and left because they didn't like the fact that we do not cut corners on safety has always had a negative story to tell. My advice. Come in and check us out. Call the health board. We are one of the very few places that pass with flying colors, most of the time a perfect score. If things are not done properly, I assure you the manner is handled. And the staff is reprimanded.


Let's pack the place. Baked steal special, and chicken and dumplings. Yummy yum yum.
