Unity Town News
In My World
My friend Megan from Unity took us to Ralph’s Cafe in Brooks recently for dinner, and we went again for breakfast this past weekend. We’d never been there. What a find! ‘Good things come in small packages’ quickly describes Ralph’s Cafe. When you walk in, you may notice the place is cozy, but you quickly forget as your eyes start to travel over the incredible memorabilia adorning every inch of the walls. The staff is friendly, helpful and entertaining. The menu is chockful of both traditional and more eclectic delights and the prices, still very nice. Located right in the center of town at 12 Purple Heart Hwy. They close for the winter, so if you have a chance, take a drive out! You can also find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/groups/144023948384.
