Eatery named after Lora Wrolen

By Charlotte Isbell

Ruth Astor of Buffalo had a dream of opening a restaurant in honor of her grandmother, Lora Wrolen, who not only loved to cook, but was extremely talented in her cooking.

That dream came true on Feb. 6 when Astor opened her new carry-out restaurant, Wrolen Pin Cafe, located at 2533 Lincoln Farm Road, next door to Lincoln Jamboree.

Astor’s mother, Brenda Miller from Lincoln Place, Ill., her daughters, Sarah Beth and Rebekah and a friend, Ernest Baker, are helping with the grand opening.

She hopes to expand in the future with dine in but at this time they are limited to carry-out and will do local deliveries depending on the size of the order.

Astor’s husband, Craig, who is a realtor, pastor and works for UPS, has also helped his wife with her new business. He has helped by passing out flyers and getting the building ready for her opening.

Ruth said her recipes are all handed down from family members. Her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother have all contributed to her delicious menu.

Wrolen Pin Cafe is open 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday through Friday for carry-outs and also is available for catering.

The menu includes a plate lunch with meat, two sides and a drink included for one price.

Wrolen Pin also serves hamburgers,  chicken melts and peanut butter pie.
