The Elk Horn Cafe dating from the 1940's is now used for storage. During the early years, the cafe was a cozy and welcome eating establishment with marbled-top counters. Todd Hunt owns Bill & Ella Baker's property. This includes their home, the Elk Horn Cafe, filling station and old post office building. Jackie Hunt's Daniel Trading Store used to be the E.D. Key General Merchantile Store. It is the second oldest building still standing in Daniel, and still looks very much like it did when it was built in 1913. It now houses antigues, the Talking T-shirt, and a meat market. At one time there were two grocery stores in Daniel. In 2000, you can't even buy a loaf of bread in the little town.
