Tucked Away . . .

a lunch counter

in a one time hometown pharmacy

no pharmacy or pharmacist on board

but the pharmacists daughter

kept the doors open when her dad died

and created one of the best lunch corners around

salads, egg salad, ham cheese, turkey swiss, grilled cheese sandwiches

a cup or bowl of soup or chili

lime soda, root beer floats, ice cream

vintage, old fashioned everything

dishes, bar stools, chairs, tables, memorbillia everywhere

let the pictures tell the story


we enjoyed our lunch
my brother flies back home to Iowa tomorrow
a special week indeed

Hello, Lynne! what a great place. I remember going to our local pharmacy lunch counter. I hope you had a great Christmas and visit with your brother. Enjoy your day and the week ahead! I wish you all the best in 2017, Happy New Year!

OK, so if I ever get over to your side of the state for a face-to-face, can we go there? This spot looks so fun, so charming -- and what's not to love about egg salad?

So glad you and your brother are having fun!
