New Market May Boost Long-Time Locals Cafe

New Market May Boost Long-Time Locals Cafe

 

A cafe that has stood on Las Vegas Boulevard for years is getting a boost from development of a new market next door.

          Seven days a week, Teddy Pappas wakes up at 2 a.m.

           In the early morning hours he prepares the daily soup, meats and sauces for his restaurant, so they’re fresh        and ready to go when customers place their orders. At 73, Pappas has owned Tiffany’s Cafe for 10 years, but he’s worked in the restaurant for more than three decades.
