New downtown Albany business opens bright & early

Albany--Good news for downtown Albany. More businesses are opening up shop here in the "Good Life City."   In September, we saw the opening of Riverfront BBQ on Broad Avenue.  But now there's new competition in town from the Flint River Café located at 311 North Washington Street inside the old Hubbles building.

The restaurant will be serving up breakfast Monday through Saturday.  From a country style breakfast buffet to various types of omelets prices range from two dollars to eight dollars.  Albany city employees can receive half off the buffet with a valid ID. 

The restaurant is open from 6 AM to 2: 30 PM Monday through Friday.  And from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday.  Lunch is also served.

Donna and Ty Miller are the owners of the Flint River Cafe, and they're still expanding the place.  They're currently working on a banquet room where they'll serve dinner during special events or occasions.

The couple previously worked in the newspaper and broadcasting industry but decided to do something different and help bring more growth to downtown Albany.

In the next month, another business will open up shop in downtown Albany.  Ramiro Alvarez, who currently owns and operates San Joe's Mexican restaurant on Broad Avenue, has purchased a building just a few doors down for a new nightclub.

It's right next to Star Broker's Pawn Shop in the old American Finance building.  It should open in about a month.

River Front Cafe can be reached at (229) 439-7699.
