Going to breakfast...

Hello friends! When we are up here in the mountains, we eat breakfast sometimes at a charming place called Ward's Grill in Saluda, NC. I shared a little about this great little town in one of my posts this summer.

Here are a few photos...

I took the middle three photos the last time we were in when it was kind of empty, and the top one was taken when it was busier this past week. We actually were sitting next to the mayor. And the most refreshing thing? Though it was crowded, everyone in there had smiles on their faces and not one person took out a cell phone. No one. Not even the mayor. It's just that kind of place. It's just that kind of town.



  1. Hi Sue, I love that old-fashioned look of the place. It's great that you could enjoy your breakfast without having other guests talking on their phones.
    Have a wonderful Sunday!

    1. Hi Julia! It is like a step back in time and that is so refreshing! I hope you had a great weekend! XO

  2. It looks like just the kind of place you'd want to go for breakfast...when I saw the sign in the window that said "fountain service" it made me feel like I was a child again, going to small towns and feeling "at home".

    1. Amen to that! What's really interesting is that so many of the people that live in this town have been here their whole lives. Population of full time residents about 750, we were told. Of course, many more come in the summer. And the older people have such great stories to tell. The best part is that they're happy where they're at, and I can't blame them for that!
