Nun Celebrates 100th Birthday at Denny's, Credits Her Long Life to Daily Visits to the Restaurant

Playing Nun Celebrates 100th Birthday at Denny's

A Florida nun celebrated her 100th birthday doing what she knows best — enjoying breakfast at Denny’s.

On Tuesday, a Port St. Lucie Denny’s restaurant threw a birthday to remember for Sister Marie Alice LaGace, who says her secret to a long life is loving god, loving one another and daily trips to Denny’s.

"It is to us a wonderful thing to have you come in every single day," Maurice Warrington, the general manager of the Denny’s location, said in a speech. "It just radiates good will and peace. And look, Sister, this is what you do, this is what you’ve done your whole life — raise a whole community."

Every day for nearly 25 years, Sister LaGace has frequented the same Denny’s after church, where she orders one egg, one piece of toast with a pack of grape jelly and a coffee.

As a birthday present, Denny’s dedicated to her the same booth she sits in every day.

The restaurant also had a cheekier gift to the nun — a ruler — to symbolize the long-held belief of nuns as strict disciplinarians.
