Karen's Kitchen

Karen's Kitchen has been part of Waynedale long before I was born. This donut shop on Bluffton Road is the main hangout for the elderly people around here.

The owner recently retired and sold the restaurant. The new owner is changing the name to Big Daddy's Diner. This isn't the first time that the name has changed. For a while in the late 90's the name was changed (I can't remember the name!), but it didn't last, and the name reverted to Karen's Kitchen.

I wonder how long that "Big Daddy's" will last? People here don't like change!


Update: Big daddy's lasted less than a year before closing. The building sat empty for a few months before reopening as "Waynedale Cafe". As of 3/2010, it is still open.

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
