From Sea to Land comes The Galley Café in Villa Rica

The Galley Café just hit shore outside the Carrollton, Georgia city limits. This restaurant is a “Grab & Go” eatery run by retired Naval Chief Petty officer Patrick Brigman and his wife Cookie. Truly, it is a match made on land and sea. Did you know that in maritime terminology galley means the kitchen of a ship or an airplane? This café is a perfect blend of Navy memorabilia and a dine in or take out hub to meet, honor, and remember the men and women who have served past and present in the United States Navy.

The Brigman’s relocated here in Carroll County from Ohio. They wanted to be closer to Patrick’s dad. His wife noticed there really wasn’t a place to eat around Fairfield unless it was the clubhouse. Cookie spearheaded the hunt and the renovation for The Galley Café. He calls her the boss, and he handles the grill and the cooking. After crossing paths with John Dickerson, which Patrick considers a divine intervention, a retired Navy Senior Chief, helped steer other vets to the café.

The veterans declared the food was delicious, but the pancakes were too big. The non-formal but affordable café serves breakfast and lunch. Deli sandwiches, burgers, Coney dogs, and salads are just a few of the items you will find on the menu. The Brigman’s daughter and son-in-law also help at the restaurant. Although they’ve had to push back their opening, due to family illness, Patrick and Cookie hope to open Friday July 5th.

They invite everyone to come out and try the Galley Café’s menu. Family friendly with seating for 25-30 patrons, Patrick says the café is an upscale hole-in-a-wall establishment. The Galley Café is located at 68 Fairfield Road, Carrollton, Georgia 30117. For more information call 678-664-2014 or send an email to [email protected].
