Veal's Café was the 1st Negro Cafe in Downtown Milledgeville with a Coca-Cola Sign. The Veal Café was owned by the Veal Family Founders of Education, Sgt. Henry Veal, II and Mamie Solomon Veal. From 1937 – 1957. The Café was the preferred watering hole for World War II traveling African American solders to eat, drink adult beverages and socialize. It opened prior to World War II. Local oral history says many of the courthouse workers (all GEAPs) used their first downtown “Take Out Window” to buy a Fish Sandwich and Coca Cola Combo for a nickel. Henry, II stationed in France during World War I, was the cook to the Caucasian (Good European American) People, pronounced "JEEP" Army officers. Coca-Cola Authorization.
