Dalton is our grill cook. He is a great young kid. And, he kicks it up on the grill, too. Sit behind him sometime and you will see what I mean. We hope that Dalton is with us for a long time.
It won't be that long before you and Kurt reach your retirement age. Ha, Ha.
An old favorite customer that we miss dearly.
Neighbors Cafe is a warm, neighborly place to eat. We are very fortunate to have one of our best crews. They work hard, try hard, and care very much about our customers and Neighbors Cafe. How lucky is that nowadays? Customers can choose from a wide variety of breakfasts, lunches, and deserts. We want our customers leaving happy and full, and anxious to come back.
Shelly tends the store managing the day-to-day operations at Neighbors. Shelly, or Speed Bump as the help calls her, participates in cooking, baking, bussing and waiting tables, and pretty much whatever else is required, including conversing with the customers. Shelly has to leave twice a day usually to tend to her disabled husband, Cameron, or Cam, as many know him. He no longer drives but he sure does miss being down at "Neighbs" and shooting the breeze with the customers. He enjoyed that so much. (We should add that he enjoyed it more than the help as they were always complaining about him being in the way!) That's just wrong, isn't it?
Amanda is the one that the customers never see. She is our little baker, and boy can she bake. She is always whipping up something good for desert. Check out the selection. And her cinnamon rolls. Yummy!
Kurt, the Kitchen Nazi, is our busy prep cook in the back. He does not venture up front very much. He is a busy guy, and someone that we are very glad that is in our life. We would be in serious trouble without his efforts.
Sam is our dishwasher. He has to hustle quite a bit. He is really working out well and seems to be a very good kid.
Shayne is our man of many coats. He preps all of the veggies and the meat for the front. You will also find Shayne
helping Dalton at the grill during busy times, running the register, rolling silvy, and just about whatever else is needed. Shayne is our shy-guy employee, and has just been thrown into the mix, but not only is he becoming an invaluable employee, but he is becoming a hit with the customers. Shayne is impossible not to like.
Speaking of becoming a hit, Ashanti is our very tall centerfielder. He roams around doing all sorts of odd jobs. He is such a good kid, too. He rolls silvy, busses tables, runs register, carries a few dishes and so on. We seriously do not know what we would do without him filling in the gaps. And, he loves working at Neighbors Cafe, has a wonderful heart, and sincerely enjoys talking with our customers. Linz and Ashanti also share in waiting tables a bit. Linz, or Sissy, and Ashanti are new at waiting tables but they are catching the knack and becoming quite popular with our customers. Lindsay is officially the full-time waitress, but Ashanti still gets his waiting in as they are both such a hit with the customers. They both do a fine job of keeping things fun at "Neighbs" for both the help and the customers. We are lucky to have them.
This just leaves our head waitress, Christi. Man, is she a keeper. Christi has become a winner and a fan of the customers here at Neighbors. We can't beat that! Both Linz and Christi love working with our customers and working at Neighbors.
So come on down for a great meal and a fun experience.
Father and son bonding and having some fun at the counter.
Wow! It seems impossible to believe. Shelly and Cameron opened Neighbors Cafe in November,1997. That is over 20 years ago.
