An Interview with Claudia Taylor


Interview by Dynasty & Ronisha, members of Cafe 361

It’s 5:30pm on a Wednesday night and people are making their way into First Congregational Church. Down the stairs and to the left they enter the door. Is that a nightgown I see? Are those slippers… in March? Do not be surprised, Cafe 361 hosted a pajama “Breakfast for Dinner” party last Wednesday!

Guests and the Cafe 361 chefs were encouraged to dress for the occasion in their favorite pair of pajamas. At this meal, Claudia Taylor took a minute to talk to Cafe chefs Ronisha and Dynasty. ”

I’m big into breakfast!” said Claudia, when asked what inspired her to come to Cafe 361’s March dinner. This was her 4th Cafe meal this year. Last year she attended even more. Of course Claudia knew to get in the spirit and was wearing her blue nightgown. She told Ronisha and Dynasty it’s her favorite pair of PJ’s because of how soft it is.

On the breakfast menu was a variety of classic morning dishes including mini biscuits topped with sausage gravy, a bacon and vegetable egg casserole and crispy potatoes. Claudia’s favorite dish was the pecan caramel rolls, “breakfast dessert”.

Since Claudia loves breakfast, Ronisha and Dynasty had to ask what was the best breakfast she has eaten.

“It was at Perkins – egg casserole, hash browns, etc. A really good breakfast buffet.”

There are a variety of things that keep Claudia a regular supporter of Cafe 361.

“It’s always positive. I love the themes. I like how the Cafe girls all have a part during the meals and what you do, including the public speaking.”

Not long after the breakfast buffet line opened, guest’s had licked their trays clean. Soon the line of slippers and pajamas were heading back out the door and up the stairs. It was a successful Cafe 361 breakfast dinner! We’re glad our guests are willing to have fun and change things up every now and then with us.
