Canton Main Street is happy to announce the March Spotlight of the month, Don & Nancy’s Café, located at 124 N Main St. Don & Nancy’s Café has become a popular staple business in our downtown offering one of the best unique breakfast and lunch menus in town.
Don and Nancy’s Café is privately owned by Jesse and Elizabeth Kidd. Jesse had worked as a chef in Peoria for 12 years. Jesse and his wife decided to start a family and Jesse wanted to be able to spend more time at home, so they made the decision to open a breakfast and lunch café.
Jesse and Elizabeth named their café after Jesse’s grandparents Don and Nancy Carrell. Jesse grew up going to “mom and pop” diners with them all the time. When Jesse walked into the property at 124 N Main St. it immediately took him back to his childhood. They spent six months renovating and personalizing the café prior to opening on June 13th, 2018.
Don and Nancy’s Café serves breakfast and lunch, and also offers catering services. They pride themselves on offering fresh foods with an upscale spin. They hand cut all their potatoes, grind their own burger and breakfast sausage, bake sandwich breads and other baked goods in house. They will also cater and rent out their building for parties after hours.
Don and Nancy’s Café is a supporter of Canton Main Street and when in season they purchase produce from local farmers some of who set up at our Annual Farmer’s Market in Jones Park. They are also a part of the Canton Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Café has new hours since reopening for in-person dining. They are open Wednesday thru Friday 7 a.m. – 2 p.m., Sat 6 a.m. – 1 p.m., and Sunday (breakfast all day) 7 a.m.- 12 p.m. They are closed on Monday and Tuesday. Breakfast is served until 11 am. You can check out their daily specials and some photos of their delicious food items via their Facebook page (Don and Nancy’s Café LLC) and you may reach them by phone at (309)435-7005.
