|A long time ago, in an obscure town founded on the Forks of the Kalamazoo River, Robert Cascarelli came to Albion to open a fruit store on the far north end of Albion.Over the years, there were natural disasters, including the famous “100 Year Flood” that destroyed all of the property of the Cascarelli’s including their beloved peanut roasting machine. Cascarelli’s Redskins Peanuts were a favorite treat of visitors to Albion, and the family closely held its secret methods of making this delicious treat.
Robert Cascarelli moved his establishment to the heart of downtown Albion after the great flood, and began to expand his offerings to include candy and soda.
Robert’s son Louis took over the business, and after prohibition, began to serve alcohol and later sandwiches.
Today, Cascarelli’s Restaurant is still located in the heart of downtown Albion, across from the Bohm Theatre. You can still enjoy Cascarelli’s Redskins Peanuts, a cold beverage, a sandwich, or, on weekends, a full dinner. Come enjoy our entertainment on Wednesday evenings starting at 8:30 during the school year – and on other selected nights. Check our our entertainment, our catering menu, of local interest – and our About Us page for more info on the Cascarelli tradition, and Albion Michigan.
