These fries are sizzling hot

The Elbow Room is a deli/café offering breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Now when clients bring in their laundry to the laundromat for a cleaning, they don’t just have to sit and watch the dryer toss their clothes around in circles.  They can step next door (in the same building) for a meal, snack or just a coffee at the newest restaurant in town.  The Elbow Room is a deli/café offering breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Manager Kim Kennedy, welcomes the public to come on in and give their food a taste.  The deli/café is open to everyone of course, and not just those whose clothes need a cleaning.  It is located straight across from Golden Hills Grocery at 148 Bridge Street.

Kennedy moved to Princeton a year ago with her husband and two grandchildren.  Husband Bill transferred to Copper Mountain Mine from Huckleberry Mine near Granisle, B.C. and they haven’t looked back.  “We really like Princeton,” stated Kim.  “The people here are really friendly.  We haven’t regretted the move one iota.”

The deli/café and attached laundromat are owned by Michael Yates and Kennedy who has worked in the service industry for 35 years is the charge of the operation for the new deli.  The deli has been open since last Tuesday, Oct. 11 and so far the response has been good.  “People have been enjoying their food, telling us they like the atmosphere and the prices,” stated Kennedy.  “We are pleased with the comments of opening week.”

The Elbow Room offers breakfasts of omelettes, French toast, pancakes, quiche Lorraine, bacon ‘n eggers, toast, bagels and fruit salad.  Lunch includes daily soup and sandwich specials and all kinds of sandwiches and salads including burgers, chicken strips, quesadillas and chilli on a bun.  The dinner menu is simple.  “I have one dinner special a day,” Kennedy stated.  “We wanted to keep it simple.”

On top of daily specials and the regular menu, Kennedy is available for catering or to make up cheese and meat trays or other platters as desired by her customers.  One thing she wanted to stress is that the fries are homemade.  “No frozen fries are allowed in here,” said Kennedy.  “They are homemade and that’s the way it’s going to stay.”

Kim and Bill have had their grandchildren living with them for the past 10 years.  William and Hannah are liking Princeton too.  “Princeton is friendly and family oriented,” Kennedy concluded. “To us that’s a good reason to stay.  Come see us some time.”
