Why wait for a table when you can simply call or order online on your smart phone, and have your steak dinner delivered to your door? Two budding entrepreneurs, Sammy Caraballo and Logan Gundolf, see this growing consumer need and started Steak It Eazy to do just that — serve the home connoisseur restaurant-quality food. Their concept aligns with an emerging national trend of “restaurants” with no dine-in option. For the operator, there’s less overhead and more focus on food quality. The customers, in turn, get more affordable good food. Win-win.

You would want to move fast though — call the restaurants sooner rather than later.

Chako Bakery Cafe is the kind of sunny, charming place that just draws you in. Along with Chako‘s warmth and irresistible baked goods, you may find it hard to leave! More than anything, I love how this former nurse from Japan can reinvent her life and career in Covington in just a couple of years.

Chako tells me she starts work at 4 am and doesn’t finish until 11 pm.
