Popular eatery closing

July 28, 2004

Ben Hill-- A favorite Fitzgerald eatery is shutting its doors.

After eight years, Tony's Main Street Bakery and Cafe will close Saturday.

People travel far and wide to eat there. Carol Bowen of Tifton says she drives to Fitzgerald at least once a week just to dine at Tony's--a tradition that is coming to a close, "I don't know. We were just talking about that, I have no idea. There is no other place in town that compares to this to me."

The owners say after eight years of operating the cafe, they are ready to try new things.

But, the family hopes they can sell the business to someone who might keep it open.
