BORN IN SLAVERY AND RAISED IN ITS PAINFUL AFTERMATH TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL AMERICAN ICONS, SHE HAS BEEN MADE TO ENCOMPASS LOVE AND GUILT AND RIDICULE AND WORSHIP —AND STILL SHE LIVES ON – PHIL PATTON
Mammy’s Cupboard was constructed around 1940 by the Gaude family to attract customers to the Shell Filling Station that was here for many years. The building has housed a number of different businesses since then, but probably none as successful and memorable as the wonderful restaurant that Doris Kemp started here in the late 1990s. It’s a lunch-only place where Doris and her family cook up outstanding daily specials along with a variety of soups, sandwiches, salads and “fantastic desserts that you’d travel a hundred miles for.”
Mammy’s Cupboard sits beside Highway 61 just south of Natchez, a Mississippi River town with a long and celebrated history. If you’re anywhere near the area, you will want to make time for lunch in this unusual building that can make you think about lots of things while you sample some sublime Southern cooking.
