THE COLONEL’S COUNTRY HAME BREAKFAST
While Colonel Sanders is most famous for his fried chicken, it was his country hame that brought folks in for breakfast. The Colonel used Smithfield hams and served a large portion complete with biscuits, red-eye gravy, fresh eggs and grits. As his menu stated “$1.70—not worth it—but mighty good.”

To promote his mornings specialty, he had Corbin photographer Walt Ott take a picture of waitress Leota McBurney beside a table displaying the best breakfast he had to offer.

The Willett maple “deuce table” and two chairs are part of the original furniture purchased in 1940. All the dishes, silverware, and the sugar packet holder have remained with the Cafe since 1940. A red gingham checked napkin and glass honey stand complete the setting and are also from the Cafe.

Originally located on the back wall of the rear dining room, the Willett maple hutch is an original fixture from the Cafe.. This piece has remained in the Cafe since 1940, having been removed only to be restored. It was originally used to store honey stands, cake plates, glasses, napkins, and tablecloths.
