Beaver Dam cafe will re-open | News
The Beaver Dam Cafe' is getting a new lease on life. New owners Terri and Tony Minton are about to begin the process of opening the restaurant that's been part of the city's downtown for decades.
Terri recently told us about their plans to bring back this Ohio County landmark:
"The Beaver Dam Café has been an iconic fixture in downtown Beaver Dam, KY since the 1920’s when it opened as a restaurant and hotel. Through the years it also served as the Greyhound Bus stop and was famous for its homemade desserts. It was even included in a write up on local restaurants in New Yorker magazine in March, 1989 that included their recipe for Banana Pudding Pie.
It has been closed since November of 2008 and has been sorely missed by those of us who grew up eating there. When the opportunity to purchase became available in September we eagerly accepted the challenge to bring it back to the community. Having been born and raised here, the Cafe is a part of our history that we want to see continue. Downtown Beaver Dam is seeing a revitalization of sorts with its participation in Paint the Town and the opening of new shops and businesses to enhance those already there. Re-opening the café will bring even more people back downtown and will bring back a part of history along with it.
The deed to the property will transfer to us this week with renovations on the property beginning soon. We don’t have a firm date set for re-opening but hope to be open for business by late spring. The community as a whole has been so supportive of the venture thus far and people truly seem to be as excited about the return of Beaver Dam Café as we are."
