Café And Liquor Store Opens In Downtown Lane

By Katie McDougal

A dream that began prior to February of 2011 has now become a reality.

Along about that time Mary Kay Johns began thinking about the possibility of a café in Lane. In conversation with Garry Crouch, she found he had also thought along the same lines.

They put their heads together and ground was broke for the new building on the east side of Main Street of Lane in early February of 2011.

As a result, there is now a business called the Lane Cafe Convenience and Liquor housed in a well-built large metal building .The liquor store, which opens to the back of the building into an alley, opened in July.

The Lane Café, with a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, opened Jan. 10.

Johns and Crouch are partners in the business.

Members of the wait staff are Delphia Sweeney, Tess Shoemaker and Jana Brown. Sherry Goodwin, helps with the bookkeeping as well as waits tables when necessary. Esther Scherff is the head cook, assisted by cooks Marcella Hampson and Kimberly Cawby. Nan Bewley is an all-around staff member, serving wherever needed.

The café is open from Tuesday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturdays, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays. The estimated seating capacity is about 40 people. The interior of the café is attractively decorated.

Opening hours for the liquor store are from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; from 9 to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
