Lions Club learns about Legacy Cafe

Dallas Russell, executive director for the Ben D. Johnson Educational Center, recently spoke to the Natchitoches Lions Club recently about one of its components: The Legacy Café.

The Legacy Café, located at 400 MLK Drive, Suite J, will offer a made from scratch menu with locally sourced ingredients when available. Breakfast will include quiche, muffins, scones and specialty coffee drinks. Lunch will offer soups, salads and sandwiches. Café hours will be Monday-Friday 7am – 2pm. The café will be the hands-on training environment for participants in the Legacy Youth Workforce Development Program.

The Ben D. Johnson Educational Center will utilize a social enterprise structure to serve the community with a Youth Workforce Development Program, Legacy Café, Teaching Farm & Green Market and a Shared Community Kitchen/Business Incubator.

Founded by Claire Prymus in honor of her late uncle, the Ben D. Johnson Educational Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a commitment to building community and providing access and opportunities for residents in Natchitoches.

  1. My husband and I recently ate there & had a very nice experience. Food was really good & decor was appealing. We certainly will go back.

  2. We had lunch at Legacy Café yesterday. Got the Ben’s Burger. It was very good. Enjoyed the atmosphere too. Background music added to the experience and we were able to carry on a conversation using our “inside” voice. Didn’t have to yell at each other to be heard over loud music. And the decorations and the outdoor patio area is nice. Really adds to the whole dining experience.

    Congrats to Ms. Claire, this was a long time in coming and took lots of work to get it done.

    Give it a try!
