Mr. Ernie Young recently sent me a couple of pictures from Pazz’s Coffee Shop on Lawrence Avenue. The shop was located next to the State Store (now known as Wine and Spirits) during the 1960’s. It was owned by Mr. Young’s mother, Virginia Young and his aunt Kay Paswell from 1960 to 1969. The owners are pictured above behind the counter on the left is Kay and on the right is Virginia. Ernie’s father, Ernest Young Sr. is pictured serving customers in the second photograph as well. This picture gives us a good look at the prices on the menu as well.
Steak sandwich – 40¢
Shrimp with French fries and a coffee 99¢
A mushroom steak or pepper steak sub 45¢
Don’t forget – Drink Hires root beer.
