Cafe on the Square was a beacon on the Square

Writer calls it 'A Class Act.' Sounds hope that the closing will only be for a short time

By Doug Peterson

It is so very sad about the Cafe.

It was not only a beacon on the Square, it was a class act within the community. Their hospitality was wonderful and the menu and food preparation was most excellent.

The Cafe On The Square was not only a gathering place for the students at Lindsey Wilson and a regular lunch spot for the workers in the area, but it was also a place that visitors to our community (including those from out of state) would come to. It represents the best of Kentucky hospitality and quality dining in a relaxed atmosphere that made everyone feel at home.

With the closing (hopefully only for a short time), we have not only lost some dear friends, we have lost a member of our family.
