Sugar Camp - February 25 is National Pancake Day and Laura Horack, Owner of Laura's Café is celebrating with delicious Raspberry Pancakes.

"Today we have raspberry pancake special, my daughter started this about two years ago. We have two raspberry pancakes, sausage links and two eggs for 7 dollars," said Horack.

Laura's Café is a family run business that has been running for 7 years and has been trying to stay afloat amidst the pandemic.

"It's been very hard although we have a lot of people that support us. People from Michigan that are so happy that Wisconsin has restaurants open that you can come in and sit down in.," said Horack. "So when they come to town to go shopping they stop so that they can sit down in a restaurant and eat."

Laura has gotten creative with new ways to bring in customers to make up for pandemic losses.

"We have a fantastic fish fry on Friday nights. Laura now serves take and bake pizzas. I started during the pandemic to try to get more business to come in we're doing very well with those," said Horack.

Laura is taking the pandemic very serious by having her staff wear masks around customers and other cleaning practices.

"My husband bought a fogger as soon as this started so he foggs several times a week. He fogs the dining room, he fogs the kitchen so we've done a lot of sanitizing," said Horack.

Locals like Ron Orth have been coming together to support Laura's Café and other small businesses in town, because that's what the Northwoods is about.

"They've really been hurting with this COVID and these guys really got hit hard so you got to support them you got to keep them going," said Orth.
