FRED SAUCEMAN

eggs, sausage, and cheddar cheese
are blended together and served
with a side of sausage gravy and,
yes, biscuits.
Even the coffee served at The
Roanoker has a history. H & C
brand coffee still carries the initials
of Harold and Clarence Woods,
two Greensboro, North Carolina,
brothers who established Woods
Brothers Coffee Company in 1927.
A neon H & C Coffee sign in downtown Roanoke is a reminder of that
history. Impressed by the neon
signs of New York City, Harold
Woods had it constructed to promote his Roanoke business back in
1948.
The Roanoker Restaurant moved
to its current location on Colonial
Avenue in 1982. Before then, Craft
says, "We had always been in someone else's building." She doesn't
have to go far for maintenance work,
though, calling on her husband David, who retired from a similar job
at LewisGale Medical Center.
The Roanoker is one of those

restaurants that sponsors a Little
League baseball team. It's the type of
place where the city's civic clubs like
to hold their meetings. It's a place
not only for routine weekly or daily
meals but also a place for special celebrations-birthdays, anniversaries,
retirements, promotions. And Butch
Craft keeps track of them all. Eat
at The Roanoker and you feel like
you've entered her own personal
dining room.
Ever since the frightening days
of the Second World War, Roanoker employees have proudly offered
up to generations of customers the
certain and timeless comfort of hot
biscuits.
