A few pictures from the good old Omelettry West: K & P

Just a fun picture of Kent and his first wife Patricia (above pic), hard at work behind the front lines at the Omelettry West. The cafe opened on Jan. 1979. They were open for breakfast and lunch only, closing at 3 pm daily. Patricia and Kent split up a year later (the restaurant business IS hard, it's true) and Patricia went on to create the Kerbey Lane empire. Kent finally bought 100% of the shareholder stock in 1987 and the business was renamed the Magnolia Cafe.
