The Sandy Cay Cafe was originally owned by Summer's mother Jackie Quinn and named Jackie's Summer Place. But after she sold it, former reporter Kaye Morgan reopened the restaurant as the Sandy Cay Cafe in the Season 5 episode "K-Gas the Groove Yard of Solid Gold."
During its operation, the Sandy Cay Cafe provided employment to a number of characters. Most notably, the Season 5 episode "The Runaways" saw Maurice (Little Richard) hired as a cook, while English singer Molly (Jayne Collins) worked as a waitress.
Neely Capshaw even worked there as a lifeguard.
