Please help Otto’s Place    

 Raise Funds for the Fight against Breast Cancer

Otto’s Place is holding for our 7th Annual fundraiser to help support those in our local community battling breast cancer.

We are honoring those who are in the fight, those who have survived the fight and those who are at eternal rest.

As in years past we will donate the monies raised to our local chapter of Breast of Friends organization because of the tremendous work they do to help and encourage women living with breast cancer.

Breast of Friends is a “Floating Support Group” of women from all walks of life
who share the common bond of being breast cancer survivors.”

Otto’s Place will match dollar for dollar up to $1000.00

Any donation you could make would be very much appreciated.  Every dollar can help save a life and can help those in need.

Enough; it’s been our philosophy from the start. Who would have thought that our little restaurant would grow so quickly and be so successful? We have exceeded our own expectations and we are so grateful to all of our loyal customers and employees for our success.

Those of you who have been with us from the beginning know what a challenge it is for us to prepare food for so many people out of such a small kitchen. Our limited space and current staffing challenges have created a situation where we need to take a step back and focus on what is enough for us.

Beginning in August we will be taking a break from serving dinner and we will be focusing our energies on breakfast and lunch only for a while. We need to take some time to reinvent, re-energize and reorganize so that we can continue to provide a great dining experience for our guests.

We thank you all for your continuous support and patronage, we couldn’t do this without you. Continue to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and keep an eye on our website for updates and previews of what’s to come.
