What's a Regular?
In most restaurants, a Regular is a customer who may visit a couple times a month.
Not at The Coffee Shop!  We are blessed to have many, many Regular customers and friends that frequent our restaurant several times a week, some daily, and even a few that drop by several times a day!
Here, we'll share a few of their stories.

All of us that know and love Ann Dickenson understand why she was chosen by Texas Monthly Magazine editor Pam Colloff to represent our Coffee Shop 'Regulars'. Ann never met a stranger and is as flamboyant in real life as she seems to be in her corner of page 129 of the December issue.
Here are Ann's words as told to Pam Colloff:

Eats at: Donald Citrano’s Coffee Shop Cafe, McGregor

“We go to the Coffee Shop Cafe every Friday and Saturday night. They always reserve a table for us, so we call if we’re not coming. It’s always the same table—the round one in the corner, on the left when you walk in. We don’t even look at the menu anymore. My husband likes the Spanish omelet and I like the chicken-fried chicken sandwich.”

Jackie and James Cunningham
The Cunningham's drive the short distance from Waco three or four times a week to The Coffee Shop for dinner. Jackie loves the Strawberry Fields Salad with the basalmic viniagrette. James usually orders the Donald's Crispy Salad and has the kitchen substitute grilled chicken since his heart surgery. They usually don't skip a Friday night at the restaurant since there is always fresh Chocolate Meringue Pie, Jackie's favorite. James loves the Greman Chocolate Pie!

Larry is a school teacher. He was talked into being a pie judge at a yearly harvest festival in Moody. "Tough job," we all said!  Well, he couldn't stop talkin' about the German Chocolate Pie which was his favorite of the competition. Larry changed his accolades after trying Valerie's homemade German Chocolate!
