Nothing Could be Finer Than to Be in a Diner. . .

. . . in the morning.  Or for lunch with friends! 

Last Friday Erika, Sean, and I traveled to Culpeper to meet the Leeds girls at the Frost Cafe.  What a hoot!  And what a cute little town Culpeper is - I had no idea.

(Swiped these two shots from
A neat old-fashioned diner, with formica tables, large vinyl booths, and plenty of seating at the extra-long counter.
Check out those light fixtures and the swivel stools!

The food was good!  Could be the best grilled cheese sandwich ever!  I am told that it's best to order the fries "extra crispy."  (I think that means 'please leave them in the hot oil until they've reached their maximum grease absorbency.') 

Since Jane and I like to meet for lunch, we plan on returning to Culpeper to sample more of the eateries and stores.  But it's always more fun when we bring along friends.

As we walked down the street to our cars, we came upon an old-styled hardware store.  Jane and I got so excited, but the Leeds girls could not understand why! 

Well here's why girls . . .
They have squeaky hardwood floors, a very distinct smell,
AND they have really cool stuff . . .
. . . like Radio Flyer cars for Sean!
.....Pfau's anyone?


  1. Pfau's!!! Yes! The Leeds ladies look great. Fab pictures!

  2. I want IN on your next trip to Culpeper! Cool!
