Did You Know… Nov. 2, 2017

Larry Vodenik - Special to The Chief

Did You Know… where this restaurant was located? The Perry Cafe was located in the building at 1014 Second Street, that today is home to Pegasus Cable TV Channel 12.

Perry has been home to many cafes, restaurants and various places to eat over time. Downtown had the Arcade Cafe, Johnny’s Lunch, Foxes Lunch, Sam’s Place, and the Red Wood, to name a few. Years ago we had mostly local home owned restaurants, today we have more of the national chains present. Working downtown in the 60’s, I ate upstairs at the Elks for many of my noon lunches.
