Honey from the Rock Cafe sustained major water damage in last week's storms.

Last week's storms did a number on Honey from the Rock, the homey Southern-style cafeteria run by Whole Life Ministries.

"Our café sustained major water damage," said Michele Haynes, event specialist at the church. " The extent of the damage is still being assessed with contractors, insurance companies, etc.  We are looking at possibly replacing walls, replacing carpet, POS Systems... major renovations."

The cafe will be closed for a few weeks as renovations are completed. "We may have been knocked down, but knocked out and we will be in full force as quickly as possible with great food," Haynes said.

We have such great community support and want everyone know what has happened and that we will re-open soon.

The cafe opened in April 2008, just in time for Masters fans making their way to the National, just across Washington Road.

Yay!!! Thanks Kelly!! I been

Yay!!! Thanks Kelly!! I been waiting all week, even went by today hoping they would be open. They have some really good food. I had no idea it would be that bad. We saw the people sucking up the flood water there when we went by last week, hoping it was just minimal floor flooding, but the days kept going by and they still werent open and started to worry. What happened? Looks like the celing caved in. I feel so bad for them. God Bless them. I hope the renovations go as smooth as possible.

Right, the damage you see in

Right, the damage you see in the photos is from where those ceiling tiles came on down and water accumulated. The food is good; we were saying the other day, it's just the thing you crave with all this rain!
