New restaurant opening in East Brewton

Food has been always been Tawanea Howard’s passion.

It’s that passion that has brought the Georgia native and current Evergreen resident to East Brewton.

On Friday, Howard will open Munchbox Café in the old Hot Diggity Dog location on Forrest Avenue.

“I love to cook and have three children,” she said. “It’s always been my passion.”

Howard said that East Brewton didn’t have that many food options and she wants to bring her food to the local area.

Munchbox Café’s menu will feature loaded salads, loaded potatoes, hot wings, hamburgers and fries, tenders and hot dogs.

“And we’ll have soft serve ice cream,” she said.

They will offer dine-in, carry-out or delivery.

Hours will be Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.
