MUSKOGEE — Opened as a tea room in 1992, Miss Addie's Café is in the historic Smith's Drug Store in downtown Muskogee.
The drugstore was built in 1915 by pharmacist Charles Smith and his wife Addie. The couple ran the drug store and soda fountain for more than 35 years. Now, Toby and Bernadette Feickert own and operate the turn-of-the-century themed restaurant.
The quaint English-style building is half a tea room on one side and an English pub on the other side, said Toby Feickert.
The upstairs of the restaurant accommodates private dinner parties, and a pub is centrally located in the restaurant.
Toby does the majority of the prep work and evening cooking at Miss Addie’s.
“My grandparents had a restaurant in North Miami Beach, and I met my wife while in school at a restaurant,” Feickert said.
The restaurant serves homemade lunch specialty sandwiches, soups, fresh bread, pastries, desserts and specialty coffees and beverages in an atmosphere surrounded by fine antiques.
Miss Addie's has rooms available for weddings, rehearsal dinners, private business meetings and showers.
“We often cater to private homes and banquet halls for any occasion as well,” Feickert said.
Miss Addie's also offers specialty decorated cakes for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, as well as an extensive wine list including more than 50 wines, and several premium draft beers including Guinness, Harp and Boulevard.
Some of the favorite lunchtime dishes are a quiche dish or a sour cream chicken enchilada casserole, Feickert said. A typical lunch costs about $8, but for $6.50 a customer can enjoy a half-sandwich, cup of soup and salad.
Popular evening meals include encrusted salmon, steaks and seafood, he said.
The average cost for an evening meal is about $20. A dinner for two with appetizers costs around $50.
Some of the entrees are eggplant parmesan, chicken alfredo, seafood pasta, pan seared escalloped chicken, chicken scampi and smoked pork tenderloin.
The restaurant offers up all varieties of cakes. A 6-inch cake sells for $10.95 and a 9-inch cake sells for $18.95. Different types include: carrot, banana, pineapple, strawberry, Italian cream and sour cream chocolate German chocolate.
Red velvet pies sell for $12.95. Lemon meringue and other cream pies sell for $13.95. Cobblers are $14.95 and $21.95.
The restaurant also sells casseroles, cheesecakes, cookies and sweet breads.
In addition to the wonderful food, the restaurant offers Miss Addie's Cookbook, which includes all of the restaurant’s special entrees, salad dressings, soups and desserts. Customers can also buy poppy seed, vinaigrette and wine paprika salad dressings.
