Hunter’s restaurant in DeLand closes after the owner sells the business

DELAND – Every Sunday for the past five years, Steve Jones has been coming to Hunter’s Restaurant with his wife for a breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon and toast with tomato yeast.

And while the food is good, the people behind the city’s oldest restaurant are the ones who support customers like Jones and countless others who come weekly, sometimes several times a week, for several years or, for some visitors, decades.

“That’s why I decided to do it,” said Jones, 68, picking up his punch card at the restaurant, which he asked Hunter’s crew to sign. “This will be very much lacking in DeLand.”

The Hunter’s Sunday crew will prepare breakfast and lunch for the last time.

A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page shattered the news and subsequently the hearts of countless customers on May 15.
