Lovin’ the Latte: Wilma Straatman and Pearl Burgess


LANSING, Ill. (May 3, 2024) – Wilma Straatman and Pearl Burgess got together at Kdulche for a late breakfast and a Lansing Journal Latte.

“We loved the atmosphere and the relaxing visit together was just what we needed. I took some of the pictures and our waitress also took several of us together,” Straatman said.

Wilma Straatman enjoyed the Lansing Journal Latte with an “ample plate of crepes topped with strawberries.”
“Make sure to get in and enjoy a Lansing Latte! We did.”

Whatever the weather

Remember, the Lansing Journal Latte — which combines chocolate, caramel, and vanilla notes — is available hot or iced. No matter what the day’s temperature is in Lansing this spring, there’s a suitable Lansing Journal Latte option.
