Combo Disaster Tour: Fee-Fo-Lay Cafe


The Fee-Fo-Lay Cafe, near the Whitney Museum, is our next stop. The Fee-Fo-Lay Cafe is owned by Joy Banner and her sister Jo, descendants of enslaved people who opened the cafe to tell more of the story of their region from their community’s perspective and to preserve their community’s rich storytelling tradition.

Though established with tourist guests in mind, the cafe has become an important site for community gatherings and local knowledge production. It has become a critical community asset.
