Coho's: Columbia's hometown restaurant
As you can see in the picture above Coho's last 1/2 price burger night before the renovation was packed as usual. I had to go this last time for one of my favorite burgers. Their turkey buffalo burger (not on their menu but by request) is the best anywhere. This is to say nothing about how the fries that accompany their burgers are addictive. I usually steal some from my wife's plate after finishing off mine.
I have blogged on how many of our old Columbia food institutions have disappeared over the years. Mrs. Z's, The Pub and Produce Galore just to mention a few. For old time Columbians Coho's remains as one that still provides a great place to get some good food (great crab cakes) and run into people you know. I rarely go there and not see someone I know. Granted the crowd at Coho's (especially on 1/2 price burger night!) is an older crowd that have called Columbia home for some time. These are the people who are first generation Columbians who moved here in the late 60's and 70's to raise their families. They remember the film on the Columbia story that you saw when you first visited the Visitors Center. They have stayed in many of our older communities long after their kids have left home.
I will miss going there as we head into winter and remember how inviting walking into the place with the fire in their fireplace greeting you. November 2014 can't come soon enough to resume coming to this welcoming community establishment again.
From CA on closing:
