Daily Grind's old building

Joe -- The Daily Grind only occupied the site in around 2005 after Hurricane Ivan trashed their former location on Palafox just north of Main (506 S Palafox). The grave refers to the shop's whole existence, not its existence at the Goofy Golf property. dcosson ··· talk 13:07, 14 July 2007 (CDT)

Aha! Were they in the old Secret Café building? That explains why I had no memory of them in the Goofy Golf site for many of those years, and also why the Property Appraiser's records show a change of ownership in 2005. Thanks! --Admin 13:13, 14 July 2007 (CDT)
No problem... I'm not familiar with Secret Cafe... The old Daily Grind was in a building on the East Side of Palafox just north of Main. See this article for more background on the move. dcosson ··· talk 13:33, 14 July 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, that was the place. Just south of Main, I think you mean. The Secret Cafe was a haunt in my high school days. I remember peeking around inside after Ivan, before they bulldozed the whole block to make way for the yet-unbuilt Floridian. I took some pictures if you ever want to write a Daily Grind article. --Admin 19:36, 14 July 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, just south of Main, that's right. Nice picture. So this Secret Cafe was in the same building? dcosson ··· talk 21:17, 14 July 2007 (CDT)
Right -- I thought it was still the Secret Cafe through 1999-2000, but I guess it changed hands in '98. This site lists the owners (managers? cooks?) as Barbara Denslow and Gina Beck, but I wasn't a regular enough patron to confirm. --Admin 23:03, 14 July 2007 (CDT)


I will get in touch with Jay and point him to this site when I get a chance to flesh out the prices, hours, and whathaveyou. —Preceding unsigned comment added by KB (talkcontribs) 22:05, 7 December 2007

  Beck Sold "The secret cafe" to Jeremy "J" for because she had to leave town for family reasons the J changed the name to "The Daily Grind" and started sdvertising to attract more costomers, then immediatly after Ivan J rushed to the grind and Turned on the comps while there was still water inside the building as a result the comp room caught fire and quickly spread "Tdg_TheDirtyJew"
