They say it’s because she provides inspiration along with cheerful service while making constant efforts to get everything just right.
Who is Lauraine Maurer?
Lauraine Maurer is the mother of four, grandmother of six and great-grandmother of seven. She eats regularly at the restaurant and says she likes it all. Her favorite dish? The fish sandwich.
