The Willow Run Cafe at 4100 Railroad Avenue (near the gazebo) is showing a growing business, and all the street comments are complimentary.

Hours are Monday - Saturday, 7 am - 2 pm, or appointment for private parties.

Lunch menu includes a variety of sandwiches and salads plus the soup of the day.

Desserts from brownies to cheesecake are available and sometime fried apple tarts.

Breakfasts have usual grits, eggs, and breakfast meats, but the muffins and bagels are very popular.

Cookies welcome guests on the front desk as they enter the door, and as they check out to go their ways.

Hot and cold drinks are available at very reasonable prices.

With 24-hour notice, whole pies and cakes, may be ordered.

Willow Run is in the historic Southeastern Oil Company building, office of the late Bill Peterson, who bequeathed it to John Lee.
