This recently opened business has become a fast favorites in Monroe County. HTC is proud to have been with them every step of the way.

Café on the Abbey

This past February, Café on the Abbey opened in the newly renovated former Immaculate Conception convent on Main Street in beautiful downtown Columbia. The addition of co-owner and chef Danny Ball has allowed for this bustling and growing business to expand breakfast and lunch offerings and the opening of a sprawling patio in front of the building which has drawn customers who enjoy dining al fresca. Since opening, they have also hosted a number of public and private events including shrimp boils, a pig roast, and an end of summer BBQ. Plus, there are plans to add even more special events in the future.

Although running a café is exciting, their days continue to grow busier as new customers discover their special offerings and ‘regulars’ continue to return for a delightful experience. A smooth business day entails serving a revolving door of customers while also ordering fresh ingredients, creating unique menu offerings, and planning events. It’s a lot to manage, but with a little help from HTC business services, it is all taken care of.

“We take pride in serving customers from all over Monroe County and beyond with a great selection and the highest quality products. We’d like to thank HTC for doing the same.” Danny Ball, Executive Chef, Café on the Abby.
