PHOENIX, NY – Every day you’ll find that Our Family to Yours Cafe, located in Phoenix, celebrates veterans from every branch of the military every day of the year.
As you walk through the cafe, you will find their wall of honor that extends to the restaurant on the left. It is filled with framed photos, as well as brass plaques with service members’ names and service dates.
The wall began as a way to honor the Phoenix breakfast spot’s many regular customers who are veterans. The oldest coffee winner served in World War II, with the last discharge date being just a few years ago.
The restaurant now recognizes not only regulars, but also patrons’ family members and other people patrons wanted to honor.
“Our guests are encouraged to bring photos,” said Fran Thomas, owner of Our Family to Yours Cafe. “We will make copies and frame them. For those who do not have photos, we will put a plate with the name, the branch and the dates of service.
Although the wall has three dozen photos and plates full of copper plates, the Thomas family has plenty of room for more.
Our Family to Yours Cafe is open six days a week (closed Tuesdays) for breakfast and coffee. The cafe is open from 7:00 a.m. to noon on weekdays and from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on weekends.
