Central Georgia Corner Cafe Series Part 4 – Corner Cafe & Grocery

Amyre Makupson, CCJ Broadcast News Director

This week’s corner café has helped breathe new life into an otherwise sleepy town.

“[Our] population is between 600 – maybe 700. There is not a lot in Cadwell for people to have as far as eating. You have to go to Dublin, or to the interstate, which are both 13 miles away,” said Mayor Larry Upshaw.

Owner Bill Coombs says his café gets a lot of foot traffic.

“Well we put a little store here on the corner in Cadwell, my hometown, and there’s a lot of potential here for taking care of a community. A lot of traffic comes by,” he said.

They’ve got everything from green beans like your mama used to make, mashed potatoes, and gravy.
