The rest of our Byways Cafe visit last Saturday

I believe this is a well-designed sign. The You Are Here dot is a fun idea.

We sat at a table beside the front window, next to the end of the counter. Mama enjoyed a cup of Stumptown Coffee while we looked at the menu. Since we had arrived less than two hours before their 2 p.m. Saturday closing time, Byways had already sold out of biscuits and blue corn pancakes. We ordered buttermilk pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs.

My breakfast--I forgot to take the photo before I had eaten some of it. Both of us were totally pleased with our food, every bit of it.

Memorabilia from most all of the states hangs from the ceiling and on the walls, as well as fills display cases and shelves. It wasn't hard for me to find these two special items.

At some point, we plan to ride the bus to Byways Cafe and get there early enough to try the biscuits. I hope it will be warm enough so that we can sit at the picnic table on the sidewalk. We'll have to wait, but we know it will be worth it. Until then, we'll enjoy our last look at the cafe as we walked to the Buick.

I can see why you started eating before photographing your food. It looks delicious.

Hi Lynette. Sorry for this short visit, but this weekend I’m going to take a musical break, and next week I’ll make a very short trip, crossing South Atlantic. I’ll try to catch up with your posts as soon as possible. Meanwhile, leave you with some chocolate champagne truffles at Blogtrotter.
Have a lovely weekend and an excellent week!

This is a truly fascinating look at the place you live. I really liked the looks of those pancake breakfasts and the bacon looks delicious. Nice photography.

I wish that I could jump into my car and meet you there, right now!!

I love the nostalgia. I was looking at the booths. They look like real naugahyde. Don't see naugahyde much any more -- I suppose they over hunted them :-)))

I can tell this is a place I would love. Any place that has Tabasco on the table has my seal of approval. Tabasco is great on scrambled eggs...yum.

great post and photos, lynette! that breakfast food looks delicious... and to answer your question, my grandma hasn't been down to the jubilee yet. but she goes with me every year for at least a little while - she doesn't like to walk around for a long time!
