Johnnie's Cafe on Weber Ave-

Postby mrDJ105 » Wed Oct 18, 2017 9:27 pm

Curious to see if anyone logging in could remember an eatery/bar/store combo on Weber ave. called Johnnie's Cafe located on Weber ave. near Marks.. I believe the owner's name was Johnny Montevecchi and his wife Margaret.. the owner died around 1988-1990, the cafe/store closed within a couple years after his death. I spent a lot of time there with family and friends during the 60's & 70's.. Johnnie's jukebox took most of my change when i was there.. everybody there thought Buck Owens and Merle Haggard were immortal gods during the 60's... such cool memories :)
