After finding the perfect location for his café’ one deserving of the name Augie’s. Damon and his team decided to open 1540 Ralph David Abernathy with the vision of providing dine In and takeout that was reminiscent of the many cafe’s and diners that artists and musicians of the past would frequent when on the road travelling across the country. Serving their favorite dishes, recipes & regional favorites.
