The Art Cafe and Bakery in San Luis Obispo, Calif., has gotten a new lease on life thanks to Oprah Winfrey. The talk show host mailed a big, fat check to the joint's owners after learning they were planning to shut the place down for financial reasons. Apparently, she sampled the cafe's chicken-curry sandwich a few weeks back and was overwhelmed. The moral of the story? "Always do your best," says Winfrey, "because you never know who's watching."
