Lambert’s Cafe
Foley, Alabama 36535

Lambert’s Cafe, also known as Home of the Throwed Rolls is a restaurant known for its homestyle cooking, “pass arounds”, and its “throwed” dinner rolls. It is distinguished from other restaurants by its policy of providing large 32 oz. drinks, a list of side items that are passed around to all customers, free refills on nearly all entrées, and, most famously, for throwing their homemade dinner rolls to the customers. Many restaurants have mimicked the “throwed roll” concept, but Lambert’s Cafe holds that they are the first restaurant to practice it. The restaurant has three locations: the original in Sikeston, Missouri, and two others in Ozark, Missouri and Foley, Alabama.

Long-time organizer Mary Carolyn McDaniel said that event coordinators are ready for a huge demand for the “king” of the festival: strawberry shortcake. Flats of fresh strawberries will also be available for purchase on both festival days.

“With all the nasty weather of last week behind us, we look forward to beautiful weather this weekend for the Strawberry Festival and expect a record crowd,” said Mary Carolyn McDaniel, a long-time organizer of the event.

“There are several new vendors, new children’s attractions and a great lineup of entertainment that we are very excited about. This should be our best festival yet.”

By staying true to its original intent – helping local charities by offering family-oriented fun and strawberry shortcake – the Baldwin County Strawberry Festival has been able to successfully evolve into one of the county’s premier annual events, regularly drawing in more than 100,000 people and raising more than $48,000 each year for its beneficiaries, Loxley Elementary School and the ARC of Baldwin County.

Both Loxley Elementary and ARC of Baldwin County have benefitted greatly from the financial support of the Strawberry Festival over the years. According to the festival’s website, prior proceeds have gone towards new computers, playground equipment and facility upgrades at the school, while ARC has used their portion of the funds to open new residential homes and purchase vans for transportation of residents.
