Amy Gravitt opened the doors to her restaurant, named in honor of her grandmother, in September 2009. Located at 2559 Pharr Ave., has gained popularity and a following in the community for their homemade, fresh biscuits and breakfast. I recently sat down to talk to Gravitt about her restaurant.

Amy: I just get to do what I love.
Patch: What is the most challenging aspect of owning a restaurant?
Amy: The biggest challenge is just being my own boss and all of the paperwork that comes along with it. I love the people, I love doing the cooking, I love serving people, I love my customers but the challenge for me is the bookkeeping.
Patch: What makes Amy La Faye's unique?
Amy: We stick to our roots here and I do what I was taught growing up. I have a lot of salesmen try to get me to change this and that, but I stick with what I was taught and how I was raised doing it. I'm very stubborn but I'm very determined to carry on what my grandmother did.
Patch: What makes the Dacula community special?
