Hopkins Center Adventures – Caroline’s Country Café – Tuesday, August 22

Welcome to Caroline’s Country Café

They are family-owned and operated restaurant located in Midlothian, Texas. We have been serving the local community with amazing food since 1999.

Caroline Flath is the owner and being a local resident she knows how the people think here in north Texas. They want a pleasant atmosphere, good service, wonderful food all day long at a great price. It’s just that simple. People have come by just to get a piece of one of our famous homemade pies.  They’ve actually shipped them all the way to Idaho.

If you’re in the mood for a home cooked meal, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, come on over to Caroline’s Country Café.

They have plenty of room.

Doesn’t a slice of homemade pie sound good?

Best Southwest Juneteenth Celebration

Why is there a Juneteenth Celebration?

According to

“Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South. Celebrated on June 19, the word is a portmanteau of “June” and “nineteenth”.[1][2] Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in most states.[3]

The holiday is observed primarily in local celebrations given by our  Best Southwest Cities who each host the Juneteenth Celebration.

Please join the Best Southwest Cities of Lancaster (host), Duncanville, Cedar Hill and Desoto in celebrating Juneteenth on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Lancaster Community Park located at 1700 Veterans Memorial Pkwy, Lancaster, TX,  75134-3316.  For more information, please connect to the City of Lancaster website:
