For more than 60 years — through some of Birmingham’s most significant social and economic history — Green Acres Café has been a constant in the city’s downtown. This iconic eatery is a popular draw in the middle of Birmingham’s Fourth Avenue Historic District, which grew out of the city’s segregationist past and remains a promising — and proud — part of its future.

“Green Acres is a family business that is family-orientated,” says owner Greg Gratton. “All my family is involved in it. Even the ones … I have living out of town. When they come home, they want to pitch in and help. … There’s a nice, friendly atmosphere.”

Some of his employees have been with him for 15 or 20 years. The customers are loyal, too.
