DNT has a nice remembrance of Charlotte Zacher, of Charlotte’s Cafe fame in Carlton, MN.
I heard the news last night from my mom who got her first job there when she was 12 years old. When my brother and I would visit the cafe in the 70s and 80s she would always be gracious and tell us stories of our mom and it was like being received by royalty, because that’s how she carried herself, and I don’t just mean the fancy dresses that she wore to work every day around the diner. A true northern Minnesota original and a gem.
Charlotte’s Cafe and Carlton were featured in a segment on the TV show “Real People.” If anyone has (or can find) a clip of the segment I would love to see it and I know my mom would, too.
