Fort Mill’s newest cafe opened downtown Thursday. Folks will have to wait a week to try it again, but they couldn’t beat the deal waiting for them.
The Community Cafe at Sisk Memorial Baptist Church replaces one that used to be offered Wednesdays at another downtown church. The setup is similar to others at Lake Wylie Lutheran Church in Fort Mill and Lake Wylie Christian Assembly in Lake Wylie. Guests get a free, hot lunch once a week with takeout and shut-in service available.
Thursday brought meatloaf and potatoes. They also had soup and True Crafted Pizza brought a mobile pizza oven truck to help celebrate.
Volunteer Sue Clark found the cafe when she visited the former Fort Mill site. On Thursday she was working in the kitchen at Sisk.
“This is what I like to do,” she said.
Steve Simmons, business administrator at Sisk, was glad to see the excitement in the building Thursday, and excited for the many meals to come.
“I imagine once word gets out good and proper, he said, “it’ll come through.”
