If you want a 100 percent black Angus burger and a tasty side of fresh-cut fries then stop by Sweet Bea’s Café on Ga. Highway 11. Sisters and co-owners Angela Durden and Kathy King opened the restaurant in December and named it after their grandmother Bea, who worked as a waitress and loved to cook, Durden said.

Sweet Bea’s specializes in all types of homemade cooking, including burgers, meatloaf and hand-breaded chicken tenders, fresh-cut fries and fresh vegetables, homemade salad dressings and desserts. Durden said the homemade strawberry cake has been a very popular choice among customers.

Sweet Bea’s also has a booming breakfast business, including homemade biscuits, eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and grits. The restaurant opens bright and early at 5:30 a.m. most days to accommodate any schedule.

"The quality of the food sets us apart from most places," Durden said. "Everything being homemade surprises everybody."

In addition to the two sisters, Durden’s husband and nephew work in the restaurant, making it a true family store.
