Angela’s at the Crosswalk Bids Farewell to Founder

Since 2011, Angela Murphy and Julie Holmer have partnered together to feed hungry Planoites at Angela’s at the Crosswalk restaurant in downtown Plano. On April 26, the restaurant and the downtown community will say goodbye to Angela Murphy, who is retiring and moving to Colorado to be near her family.

“I have known Angela for over seven years now, and I have enjoyed her being part of the downtown community. I wish her well but we are all saddened to see her leave,” said Julie Holmer.

Angela Murphy, who grew up in Italy, attended culinary school in France and moved to the U.S. in 1969, is known for her pies and pastries – a popular menu offering Angela’s at the Crosswalk. The team at Angela’s will be training a chef to make the desserts using Angela’s own recipes in her absence. The restaurant is also taking this opportunity to implement new managers.

The upscale-comfort food eatery will still be serving its down home meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including its popular Eggs Benedict and shrimp and grits.

Angela’s at the Crosswalk has daily happy hour specials

Angela’s also features special events every week, such as the popular Wednesday night live trivia, Thursday night open mic and live music every Friday and Saturday. The restaurant recently added monthly Sunday gospel brunches to its event line-up. Angela’s also offers off-site catering and bartending as well as daily happy hour specials at its full bar.
