This place is interesting, to say the least. The way I understand it, two older ladies decided to open it up a few years ago to offer homemade recipes. I don't know how accurate that is, but there are older ladies there and the one serving us thought Stro and I were young enough to be called, girls so...I'll take it.
We went for the specials- I had the egg salad and Stro had the ham and gouda. Someone on the website said it was the best panini they've ever had. That person was not exaggerating. Nothing on my plate tasted pre-made. I'm pretty sure they make everything from scratch right there on site.
I love that all the dishes are old and different. I am a huge fan of not matching dishes. And they look like patterns that someone's grandmother or great-grandmother had in their kitchen.
AND, you get to drink from Mason jars! They have tea and water. Teas are blackberry jasmine green tea (I think that's right) and black tea and your water choices are plain or diffused with fruit. That might change daily but I'm not sure. They also have beer and wine and a few other beverages. See the cooler in the lower right corner? That's where you get your ice. I love it!
The place is cute as it can be. The tables and chairs look like they came from the same place as the dishes only from the yard instead of the kitchen. They're great.
|This was the scene behind me. That mannequin in the corner freaked me right out when I first saw it. Sheesh. Check out those floors, y'all!|
|This was the view in front of me Stro sat in that chair.|
I understand the outside is lovely when everything is in bloom. I'll have to go back and check that out in the spring.
There is a little shop behind the restaurant that was cute, too called Earthly something...Designs, maybe? Artifacts? Anyway, cute shop but we didn't go inside.
We took a carryout order back for Lovely1 because she was starving. Apparently. Anyway, on the way out, Stro saw a cute little table displaying local wares. I always like that sort of thing.
Another fantastic day out with food, fun, and a good friend!
Do y'all have a place like this in your neck of the woods?
