At five to seven, we joined three others in the alcove by the parking lot entrance to Hinkle’s Restaurant. Four others joined the line as Tom Davis opened the door at 7:00 am. He welcomed us to Hinkle’s Restaurant re-opening.

By 7:45 the booths and counter stools were filling and there were about 40 or so people enjoying breakfast and chatting. It was as it used to be and is supposed to be.
