Date1920
NotesAnnie Clark, an excellent cook, opened a small dining room on the edge of the New River at the foot of Brickell Avenue during the first decade of the twentieth century. After the death of her husband in 1917, she bought a house centrally located at Southeast 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue in downtown Fort Lauderdale. She began taking in boarders and converted the first floor of their home into a diner which served the town's working people. The price of a full breakfast was 17cents. If the price alone did not attract a customer, the aroma of cooking food that wafted out of the kitchen window next to the main sidewalk did. Dinners were 50 cents for all you could eat. Many people throughout Fort Lauderdale saved their money for weeks to enjoy one these huge meals.
