Courier Café

Courier Café

When the Courier Newspaper closed its doors for good in 1979, after being in print for 63 years, the Courier Café opened in its place in 1980. A comfortable, cozy dining spot with rich history, Courier Café serves hearty breakfasts, deli sandwiches, burgers (veggie ones, too), and entrées such as southern fried chicken or oven baked trout, all served with fresh house-baked breads. For dessert, try the fresh baked pies or choose from the “Ice Cream Parlor”: hand-dipped malted shakes, ice cream floats and sundaes.
