NORWICH – A business with a familiar name, Karolyn’s Krossroads Cafe, has opened its doors in Norwich with a new menu, a new look and under new management.
Owner Karolyn White took over the cafe, formerly known as just the Crossroads Cafe, this month. Having spent the last three decades occupying nearly every position in the food service industry at one time or another from cook to waitress, White said having her own cafe had always been a driving thought in the back of her mind.
“I've just always been in the business and wanted one of my own. I've always worked for other people. I live to cook, I love good food and I don’t like the junk,” said White.
After taking over the location, just north of the city on Rt. 12, across from the upper plaza, White brought in all new tables and furniture, installed a cherry countertop, replaced the kitchen’s equipment and redecorated the entire interior. She also hired a new full-time employee, expanded hours and is offering lunch time delivery in Norwich.
