I moved to Augusta in 2008 to cover religion for the Chronicle. I didn't know a soul this far South at the time, but the area is quickly becoming home. Before then, I covered the cop beat and crime while working at a newspaper in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I got my start in Virginia writing features for a community weekly while in college.

Water damage closes Honey from the Rock Cafe

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.
