ENTERPRISE, OR - It's going to be a little tougher for ranchers, cattle buyers and other early birds to find breakfast in Enterprise, Oregon.
Friends restaurant - the only place in town that opens at 5 a.m. - closed down after serving its regulars one final time on Christmas Eve.
Friends Restaurant is owned by the Hayes family, and it opened another restaurant - called Best Friends - in Joseph last summer. After six months, the family decided it made sense to combine the restaurants, especially since they own the building on Joseph's Main Street.
With Friends now gone, the early crowd joked they would be having their morning coffee at each other's homes, though some might venture six miles south to the Joseph restaurant.
