Lovick’s Cafe in Kinston celebrates 75th anniversary

KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – A popular restaurant in Lenoir County, Lovick’s Café, is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

The breakfast and lunch café is located on Heritage Street in Kinston.

Owner Steven Lovick said the business was passed down through generations and a lot has changed over the years.

“Textiles, factories, tobacco industries leave Kinston, and we have just struggled through and tried to sustain,” said Lovick. “We need the same thing for so many years, and I think that’s what makes a difference.”

He said if it wasn’t for the community, the restaurant would not still be in business.

Lovick’s goal is to retire in the next ten years, and he hopes his siblings or their children take over the tradition.
