The actual restaurant was at 209 Union, the large house east of the red brick building housing the Jimi Hendrix Museum and west of the alley.

Sitting in front of the shrine in the shade right now. Would love to do more research and writing about it.

Does anyone remember Sarah's Cafe just East of Vie's about the middle of the block and farther down Chow Bros. Produce ? It was a one story house made into a cafe and her son worked for the Post office . I used to have lunch there all the time and I'll always remember her as a very jovial black lady . A lot of the police and city workers used to eat in the back rooms .

The correct name was Vie's Chicken and Steaks, as the owner's granddaughter explains in this great video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_khoX5h2FkQ

I think I remember Sarah's Cafe, if it was still around in 1980. Large Black women owned it and made all the meals herself. No menu, you just ate what she brought you, and you had to eat every bite! The best Biscuits, Grits and Gravy North of Texas! Loved eating there, felt like Home.....
