Sweet Janes on the Square holds ribbon cuttingBy Samantha Lyles, Staff Writer, firstname.lastname@example.org
Darlington Downtown Revitalization Association officially welcomed a new business to the community on April 14 with a ribbon cutting ceremony for Sweet Jane’s Cafe and Wine Bar, located at 26 Public Square.
Featuring a varied menu of delicious salads, soups, Tapas treats, and entrees to suit any palate, Sweet Jane’s offers a broad selection of fine wines and craft beers to perfectly complement your meal.
Proprietor Jane Johnson (pictured, center left) said she and husband Gary Johnson were inspired to open the cafe after viewing and “falling in love” with the space, which was lovingly renovated by former owners Heather and Matt Jordan to house the Chameleon Art Gallery. Now the Johnsons, along with chef Julian McLennon and their staff, hope to bring a touch of elegant casual dining to Darlington.
“It’s always nice to have a new business in Darlington. I’m tired of going to Florence!” joked Mayor Gloria Hines (pictured, center right), who praised the lovely décor and nifty menu while noting that it’s up to the citizens of Darlington to help such establishments thrive. “In order to keep these businesses, people have got to come in. It won’t survive by itself.”
“Hopefully we can make a success of it. The whole family is involved and everyone is working together. It’s turned out to be good so far, and we thank you for your support,” said Jane.
Sweet Jane’s Cafe and Wine Bar is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am until 9 pm, with special reservation only dinner menus available on Saturday nights. For more information, call 843-393-0550.
