Cafes and Restaurants: Northwestern Cafe`

Lusk Herald, July 18, 1918


The Northwestern Cafe was opened yesterday at 11 in the forenoon with a fine chicken dinner - the kind Carrie has always been famous for- the kind that holds all the old boarders and gets new ones, too.



E.A. Higgins and Leo Benninghoven of Omaha, former owners of the Northwestern Hotel and Café, were in Lusk the first of the week and closed a deal on Tuesday whereby A.M. Summer and A.W. Salzman are now owners of both the hotel and café.

These gentlemen have been successful managers of these enterprises for some time past and with the added improvements that that they intend making, both the hotel and the café are a credit to the town.

The annex to the dining room is going to be refurbished and decorated in fold and black and the café management will cater to dinner parties and are also going to make a specialty of Sunday dinners.

The kitchen is to be equipped with new sanitary fixtures and glass cooking utensils and in charge of only first-class chefs. It is also the policy of these men to serve  only first class meats and the highest grade of canned goods in the café.

This eating place has had many compliments from traveling men and strangers in the past with the added improvements certainly deserves the support and cooperation of the home people.

The annex to the dining room of the Northwestern Café has all been redecorated. The walls are finished in panels of Tiffany work with a border of fruit around the top. The drapes have not as yet been put up but will correspond in shade with the harmony of the color scheme of the room, which is known as the “Palm Room,” and which has been specially fitted up for the serving of dinner parties.

It is used every Thursday evening by the Lion’s Club and the coming Tuesday evening the Lioness Club will have a dinner there.
