I'm assuming this is the location you're referring to?

Most people know Viola took a major hit from flooding last year. 5 feet of flood water got into the gas station/ cafe'.
The good news is the cafe' is now open for lunch and will be open for breakfast by trapfest at reasonable prices. This place cooks from scratch whenever possible.
Price example: 1/3 pound cheeseburger $4.75.
Friday nite cod 3 piece $8.99
Cod sandwich $4

Food for thought at 2 miles away

Is that Sandy's Pub? I've had their burger, not bad at all. Friendly folk.

Glad to hear local businesses are bouncing back after the flood. Hopefully the Viola Horse & Colt show will go off without a problem this year. I drove through Ontario a couple weeks back and the cafe and gas station there are still boarded up.

Sure would be nice for the area to go a few years without a significant flood. They've had their share of it over the last 4-5 years.
