A longtime favorite in downtown Calhoun and across Northwest Georgia is returning.
Thurston’s Cafe at 114 Court St. opens the Monday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, and will be open Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Friday’s hours will be reserved for catering, says owner Mitzi Hutchinson.
Regulars can look forward to the original recipe, she says, with much of the same feel and operation as before. The reviews for Thurston’s during its original run were strong and remain online at Yelp! and other social media services. The sandwiches got the highest remarks as did coffee, soup and the overall decor and setting of the restaurant.
The Hutchinsons sold the business almost three years ago to David and Amanda Sellers, who opened the self-named chop house. It morphed several times and grew into a second location, opening on Broad Street in Rome but closing in January after around seven months. An Adairsville location had been planned. Sellers in Calhoun closed suddenly over the summer.
The Rome location — once the site of The Greener Burger — is now home to Duke’s Wings & Seafood.
