Clisso Cafe continues family tradition of homemade meals

PRINCETON — For many years, Fink’s Cafeteria on the Beckley Road served area residents with a variety of home-cooked meals. Now, the son of the long-time owners, the Clissco family, is continuing the tradition in his own way at the Clissco Cafe.

On Wednesday, Brian Clissco said the new restaurant, which opened Nov. 5, offers items such as hamburgers, hot dogs and submarine sandwiches as feature items.

“We have a variety of everything, including daily entrees. Sundays are steak and gravy; Mondays are pork chops; Tuesdays are homemade lasagna; Wednesdays are cabbage rolls, Thursdays  are fried chicken, Friday are fish and Saturdays are  spaghetti with meat sauce. All entrees are home-cooked meals,” he said.

Desserts, he added, include apple, chess and chocolate cream pies, cheesecake and cherry chocolates.

“Breakfast is made to order, including ham and eggs, pancakes and toast. We also offer soft-scoop ice cream, milkshakes and sundaes. We have something for any body,” he said.

The entrees, he added, include homemade rolls and a choice of corn, beans or mashed potatoes.

Clissco said, “My mom and dad ran Fink’s for over 20 years until they retired. People wanted to know when it would re-open. Business has been good.”

The restaurant is open, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. daily with local delivery, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and offering catering for local businesses. It has two full-time employees and two part-time employees.

The phone number is 304-487-1911.
