Happy Birthday to Clayton!

Clayton celebrated his 89th birthday with lunch and birthday cake with friends at the Emmaville Cafe. The party continued into the bar, where Clayton passed out birthday cake and accepted well wishes from our customers the rest of the day.  Clayton is a joy to have around, whether he's chatting up the customers, sweeping the floor at closing time or commiserating with Mike over a Twins game. We are blessed to have him.

Business has been good at the cafe, and the menu is slowly expanding. This week, we've tried out bison burgers, breakfast burritos, and Mel's newest invention, brownie in a cup.  Our first Sunday breakfast buffet was an apparent hit, as we served over 70 people (mostly) without a hitch.

Hungry fishermen attack a sample of Mel's latest creation.
Our cafe is now open from 7 am to 2 pm for breakfast and lunch. The Sunday breakfast buffet is served from 9 am to 1 pm. Come on in!
