The Hangout

Maloney, sixty-nine, retired as a sheriff's deputy in 1996. Every three years since then, he says, "I do something for fun." With the motto "retire if you want to, but never quit," he has driven a tow truck, worked at a golf course, and delivered motorcycles. He's now in his third year as an assistant in the WCC welding and fabrication department that Figg chaired for twenty-five years.

The bakery opens at 5 a.m. Monday through Saturday and at 7 on Sunday. Russell Tanner, eighty-three, says he arrives as early as 6:30 to scratch off the numbers on his Michigan Instant Lottery tickets. He has two separate million-dollar lottery wins. He greets customers by name as they pass through the swinging brown door that onetime owner Joe Schnebelt Jr. had carved at an angle into the nineteenth-century building.

Karen Dudek bought the bakery in April 2008, only to see her business partner pull out just before the deal closed.

"Many customers didn't want anything changed, from the recipes to the squeak of the front door and creak in the floors," says Dudek, forty-seven. Still, she and her husband, Michael, worked to make the eating area cozier. They replaced the ceiling and lighting, painted, cleaned, and added new features, like low hooks near the tables for purses.
