opened last Monday and serves a menu filled with what owner Monroe Ballard calls healthier choices — chicken, fish, and veggie wraps, salads, sandwiches, smoothies (mango and strawberry!), and coffee.
And starting next Tuesday, it will serve Cozy Corner
"We're helping a neighbor in need" says Ballard.
According to Bobby Bradley, grandson of Cozy Corner matriarch Desiree Robinson, the pits will be moved to the Encore Cafe, which is across the street from Cozy Corner. Much of the menu will be served, including ribs, barbecue sandwiches, wings, and the cornish game hens.
Bradley says that fund-raising efforts are going well and work on the Cozy Corner building should start next week.
"Memphis has been really kind to us," says Bradley.
