The Broadway Café was a long-standing landmark in the African American community, appearing as early as 1908 as a “lunch room” on the Sanborn Insurance Map. It was a “happening place” in the 1950s. According to recollections of Jack Bailey, "on hot summer Saturday nights you could hear the jukebox blaring and see people inside jitter-bugging." It was razed in 1962.
