Debbie & Diane Smith
Bill Smith's Cafe was an instant hit. It marked the
beginning of a family business spanning five decades
and employing three generations of Smiths.
Two of Smith's original employees have been with the
business from its first day! His wife and business partner,
Jeanette, is still a regular fixture. She works alongside
her son, Bill Smith, Jr., who now owns and operates the
business. At age 16, the younger Smith started out as their
dishwasher. He, in turn brought his daughters into the operation.
Seven mornings a week you can watch the younger Smith whip
up a breakfast to equal the one "grandma used to make!"
From the beginning the objective was to offer a
truly "home cooked meal." All of the cafe's
pies, yeast rolls, biscuits and gravy are made
from scratch. Chicken-fried steak, for which
they are famous, is made from real steak -
nothing they serve is pre-packaged!
