Editor’s note: Over the weekend the Spy heard the profoundly sad news of the death of Joe Landgraf’ after a courageous battle against cancer. In tribute to his memory, and his countless volunteer hours serving the community he loved, we are republishing our profile of Joe from the Talbot Spy on October 20, 2014.
While Joe Landgraf is mildly frustrated at times that a few folks can’t seem to get the full name of “Joe’s Bagel Cafe,” right — including a county sports team he sponsors getting it wrong on their jerseys — it seems that no one in town is at a loss of where to find Joe’s. Each morning, and now during lunch, a good number of community leaders, civic groups, and assorted coffee clutchers find their way to Easton Plaza Shopping Center for their bagel fix and local chatter.
In his interview with the Spy, Joe talks about his long history with the food scene in Easton, including co-owning The Chambers in downtown, his service with the Elks, his support of war veterans, and the trials and rewards of running your own business.
