Now, Sadler and his family, including his brother Josh, mother Paula and stepfather Dan, bring the camaraderie of eating together to Honor Cafe.

The menu features Latin-inspired American comfort food. Oscar Sandoval, a native of Houston's Xochi restaurant, is the executive chef.

As the restaurant prepares to open, Sadler suggested customers bring photos or memorabilia of their favorite soldiers to hang on the restaurant's walls. Now the place is filled from floor to ceiling with military memorabilia.

"I think a lot of people find peace here. It's not just great food, it's so much more," he said. Organically, it has become a meeting place for various organizations.

The restaurant hosts nonprofit organizations that support veterans, such as Spring Creek Blue Star Mothers and Combined Arms Operation Brown Bag, among others.

Heather Herlong, president of Spring Creek Blue Star Mothers, is also a US Army veteran and spends a lot of time at the Honor Cafe.

“Whether you're having a bad day as a veteran or a great day and want to celebrate, it's a place where people are there to hug you. They want to celebrate with you, they want to cry with you, and there are few places like that," said Herlong.

His brother, a veteran, also died during the epidemic, and the family was unable to serve him.

Instead, their whole family came to "Novor" cafe and hung their pictures on the wall.

"When we couldn't have the funeral, we were able to close it," he said. Now, when he comes to Cafe Honor, he tells people that he will have lunch with his brother. "It moves from a sense of mourning to a place of remembering and celebrating life, not just grieving."
