The Forklift Café will be closing at 1:15 pm Friday… for good. We have enjoyed 5 years of building a flavorful and fun café/diner. If you are reading this online or on your phone… we consider you a “regular” and a friend. Any we really appreciate your business and friendship.
Unfortunately there hasn’t been enough business here for us to make a living.
We have enjoyed bringing delicious homemade food, smiles, jokes, the occasional snarky exchange, and your first “smart ass charge” to you.
Feel free to pop in (leave the sad faces, and the woulda, shoulda, & coulda’s at the door)! Smile and wish us happiness, success and health and we will do the same for you. Just make sure it’s before 1:15 pm Friday J
Thank you all for the chance to share food, smiles and laughs these past few years.
And for the love of all things good…Don’t try to hug us…you know us…
WE ARE NOT HUGGERS!
And…Dorothy and Darcy still have those sharp knives J
For the remainder of this, the slowest month of the year, we will be closing daily at 1:15
