COLLINSVILLE – A soul food favorite is soon coming to Virginia Avenue in Collinsville. Mrs. Kitty's, formerly Cohen's Tea Room, had a long presence in Eden, North Carolina before closing. In 2017, they opened under the name of Mrs. Kitty's. This new addition to Henry County's dining options is that of Kitty Cohen's sons.
According to Valerie Harper, Director of Business Development at the Martinsville-Henry County EDC Small Business Division, they are doing some final work in the interior and are hoping to open before the end of the year.
The restaurant will offer southern style home cooking that many loved in their former establishment. Mrs. Kitty's will be loaded at 2089 Virginia Avenue, the former Virginia Restaurant location.
