The original Chew 'n Chat was located in southern Alabama during the 1950s and was owned and operated by my grandmother's family, the Champions. The café was well know for it's good cookin' and as a place for locals and travelers alike to come together, enjoy a meal, and share in great conversation. While working at the original Chew 'n Chat Café, my grandmother's sister, Lois, met an army soldier, Cecil, who was stationed at Fort Rucker. Their marriage and return to North Carolina brought my grandmother, Electra, with them. Here she met J.W. They soon married and began their family in Rocky Mount.
Since 2011, the new Chew ‘n Chat Café & Catering has served the great people of Rocky Mount and become a place for our community to share life and food. We are grateful to God for His blessings over our family, business, employees, customers, & community.
