Letters: Does anyone remember The Elite Café?

Editor:

As a small child, I recall a “diner” in downtown Floresville. The building, as I recall, was like a large silver travel trailer, perhaps like a trolley car. The diner was located where Eschenburg Hardware was or perhaps their parking lot ... somewhere in that area.

Douglas Henke said that it might have been The Elite Café, which was behind the big oak tree to the right of the hardware store. Carl Eschenburg bought the property and had the building moved in 1963-64 to build the new John Deere store.

Does anyone remember this diner or if it was The Elite Café? Or hopefully, have a snapshot of it?

So, Julia, are we talking on "C" Street? I thought the White House Cafe was the Elite Cafe at one time ... :)

I don't remember any silver travel trailer diner, but it was definitely not the Elite Cafe. That restaurant was located between the old post office downtown and the Arcadia theater.
