Oldest cafe in Texas closes

Recommended Posts

I was dismayed to find out that Huntsville's Cafe Texan, long a landmark of the downtown area, is no more after 83 years in business. Both the maternal and paternal sides of my family hail from deep East Texas, and I've eaten many meals at the Texan over the years on the way to visit relatives, attend weddings and funerals, and so on. 


Texas loses a landmark to COVID-19


The headline is somewhat misleading - although COVID was certainly a significant factor in its closure, it appears the owner either got some bad advice or didn't realize the code-related ramifications that would result from having the water turned off. Either way, it's disappointing that the city wasn't willing to compromise a bit more to avoid closure, considering the tremendous financial stress that the pandemic has already placed on businesses. Perhaps there's more to the story than what's been disclosed here.
