Crabill's: A Local Legend
Eventually he moved his business into a building about as small as his burgers. After Forest passed away, his wife Freda continued the business until the building was sold in 1988. In 1989, Freda’s granddaughter Marsha, reopened the business and eventually relocated to their current building on Miami St. The new building is only slightly bigger than the original, but the burgers remain the same. So, when you're in the mood for a good burger, or three, head on over to Crabill's Hamburgers. Bring your cash, and don’t forget the napkins.
Carmazzi's - A local treasure
Generations of residents grew up running to Carmazzi’s to get candy before seeing a movie (Don’t tell the Gloria) or an after-school treat. Now under new ownership, Carmazzi’s continues to be the go-to place for all your sweet tooth needs.
The Spotted Cow gave them a place to use those skills. Now expanding to the square, the Spotted Owl Coffee Bar will be another business that will utilize the talents of those with disabilities. Employees learn important social skills along with making great lattes and yummy food.
Housed in the same location will another growing business, Berry Digital Solutions. I can’t think of a better combination. Along with coffee, tea and food options, the goal is to also have wine at the Spotted Owl in the evening, making it a perfect option morning or night. The Spotted Owl Coffee Bar and Berry Digital Solutions will be holding a Ribbon Cutting on September 15 at 12 pm at their new location, 113 N. Main Street, in Urbana. Stop by anytime between 8 am - 2 pm to see the new spaces and learn more about what's happening in downtown Urbana.
