After nearly a century in business, a popular Texarkana eatery will soon close its doors.

A Facebook post for Bryce’s Cafeteria says it is closing on Apr. 30, but customers are hoping otherwise. 

“We are very sad they are closing," said customer Cassie Richards. "We love Bryce’s.”

Bryce’s Cafeteria has served the ArkLaTex for nearly 90 years. The owners of Bryce’s Cafeteria were unavailable to comment, but sources say the business is expected to be sold after Apr. 30.

The family-owned business was started by Bryce Lawrence and was originally located in downtown Texarkana before moving to its present location on Mall Drive in 1989.

“Well, I’ve been going to Bryce’s all my life from the time that it was downtown," said customer Teresa Michel. "My grandmother and I would go, and I always had to go upstairs when I was younger and could climb the steps because I loved it.”

In the past, Bryce’s Cafeteria has served many dignitaries who visit Texarkana including Presidential Candidate H. Ross Perot.
