This Monday morning I joined some Newberry High School (NHS) seniors for a “Last First Day,” at our Newberry Country Kitchen.

Lajuanna Jones owns this wonderful eatery, and says this tradition started about seven or eight years ago. The kids just show up for breakfast on their first day as seniors. They were so excited and having such a good time visiting with each other, and I moved from table to table so I could listen and visit with them. Christina Bridwell and her son, Brian, and his friend let me sit with them and then had to pay for my coffee since I left home with no money.

Lajuanna opened this restaurant 25 years ago and has been serving breakfast and lunch ever since. You can get breakfast all day and they have a super good hamburger. Lunch specials are on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday and is a favorite place for many locals. Homey atmosphere and country cooking is what you’ll get when you eat here. I love stopping in during breakfast because I can see friends and get some visiting done. Stop by and join the hometown group that eats here most every day.

On Friday’s before home football games, the football team and cheerleaders gather to eat and visit. They just seem to know that they are welcome to stop by and order their burgers and fries. How many restaurants would welcome a crowd of teenagers and their noise and mess? Well, they have found out that they are welcome at the Country Kitchen.

Hopefully Lajuanna can last another few years so more NHS kids can enjoy the traditions that have become a part of the downtown Newberry Country Kitchen.
