Whenever folks in Penfield, New York get a hankering for pancakes for lunch – they head over to the 5 Mile Café.
The family-owned restaurant is known in those parts for serving breakfast any time of the day (order their homemade corned beef hash).
They are also known for their patriotism.
“We are very patriotic here at the café – all year round –not just this time of year,” owner Jennifer Aquino told me. “We have American flags and patriotic things around the café.”
So Jennifer decided to ask the town for a permit so she could post a “God Bless America” banner on the front of her restaurant. She wanted to display the banner from Memorial Day through Independence Day.
