The prompt for Week 3 of the 52 Photos Project is Where We Meet. I chose one of the regular places that Sue and I meet when we walk, the South Store Cafe.
The South Store Cafe opened in 1903 as a general store and it remains a community gathering place and restaurant. It was named to differentiate it from the North Store located about a mile north. The North Store is still where it always was, only now it has been renamed. It still does business as a general store, while the South Store has become a gathering place and a restaurant. Sue and I like to have a bowl of oatmeal there before we start our Friday morning walks. It's a nice way to start the day. Sometimes when I'm feeling energetic, I'll take a good book with me and enjoy a bowl of oatmeal on my own.
The dining room is cozy with antique furnishings. There is a pellet-burning stove that warms things up during our cold wet winters with a comfy couch and chairs, along with the local newspapers. We are very fortunate to have this place in our small community of Scholls. There is a brief history of the South Store Cafe here.
