“There’s a lot of factors involved in it. I just didn’t make a snap decision”
Owner Brenda Sewall says she’s retiring, and there’s nobody who wants to take over cooking for everybody. Brenda said there’s a very good reason to do it though.
“All the people that comes down and getting to know them all. We’re all like family. Somebody passes away or whatever and its like losing your relative, or somebody gets married or has a baby. Its just interaction with the community. I enjoy it and if I didn’t I wouldn’t be in business for 30 years.”
So go to the Uptown Cafe in downtown Kirksville one last time…
Brenda says, “I close at 2. I”m going to have lunch.”
