You might as well go back to when that was O.O.(Dutch) and Erma Redfairn's "Dutche's Cafe," built in 1951. Of course, in the really old days, 1931 - 1950, Dutche's was initially on the corner of Ash and Front Street, across the street from Williams Grocery and the train depot. Trailways buses stopped there then.

I ate my first bag of Fritos there, around 1948. Of course, Fritos date back to 1932, actually earlier:

On Ash Street, Elzie Crawford's shoe repair was next to Dutche's, then came the Ben Franklin "dime store," Boeving's Store, and the State Bank of Campbell on the corner of West Grand Avenue.

I take a lot of pictures around town so when I get older there will be a DVD with a lot of campbell pictures to see. Then we won't have to say that this was this and that . I will have it to look at. I just wish had a lot of more older pictures to see. I know that some people have them stored up someplace in a box for us to see. The one of the Cafe is just another old days picture already and only a WEEK OLD

Did you go into Gunters and get the milk shake ? they would sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon on top ? Then two vanila cookies to eat with it, placed on the table with a napkin. I don't remember if the store had air or not. But it was good to do this when I was a kid .
good times

The bunnies and chicks at Ben Franklin, yes, what a great memory. And the little juke boxes at each table at Koffee Kup. Dille's Pharmacy - we would buy all our make-up there and they had that glass jewelry display case that rotated/turned! Fun memories

Yeah, I remember when Zella Landis was the main cook at Dutch's! Man she could sure whip up some great meals. Everything from the best chicken and dumpins' I've ever eaten to the ultimate apple pie. I still carry a little extra fat around the middle thanks to her!

Do you remember when Barney got waisted on the moonshine from the rain barrel? Or when everyone just knew that Andy was going to ask Helen to be his wife? Or when Opie shot the mama bird with his sling shot?

Man, those were the really good ole days.

My grandma, Zella Landis worked there. Very interesting to see the comments about her cooking! I always thought her cooking was amazing but she was my grandma, so I am biased!

Years ago Blacks was not allowed in Campbell before sun up or after sun down. That is why when the workers worked on the rail road and they had a black cook the car had to stay parked outside of the city limits. I never heard of Campbell not allowing Mexicans in here. I was born and raised here in Campbell. Yes I was born at home. Get a life girl.

I always thought it was owned by a lady whose last name was Evans and I think she had 3 daughters whose names all started with K's (Kamala, Karla,?). But I maybe remembering wrong.
