“Cozy Corner,” a modern dairy bar and light lunch service, held its formal opening November 4, 1958. Wally Flink, owner and operator, had demolished the former Hanson’s Hardware, one of Spencer’s oldest buildings, and replaced it with a two-story structure. First floor facilities included a space for dancing for teenagers who had been invited to use the place as a youth center. The second floor had been arranged for office suites for doctors. After a year or more this operation was discontinued and the building remodeled for the present restaurant and bar known as the Breeze Inn and managed by Flink.

Wally Flink later purchased the Dairy Belt office building, now the Carpenter building, and remodeled and modernized it for a bar. For a time he kept a cute little monkey on display in a cage there. About 1960 he remodeled his “Cozy Corner” interior, providing a modern bar, and moving his business there, naming it the Breeze Inn.
