Coffee at the Bank

I find much excitement in finding little spots in my world that inspire and delight me. If I'm being honest, it doesn't take much. ;0) But, the more I get acquainted with my new town and its surrounding areas, the more charming havens of comfort I find. "Coffee and More at the Bank" is one of those special places. Coffee, breakfast, and lunch is served daily in a historic building that once was a bank and then a lumber company (or perhaps it is the other way around?)
And believe me when I tell you the food is just as appealing as the unusual atmosphere. Owners, Deb and Wayne Sanford, stand out from all others with delicious "home cooked meals in just a few minutes wait". 

I get giddy at any possibility of eating there and try to make every excuse I can think of to do so; lunch with Dale, breakfast with out-of-town family, a much needed mom's morning out. 

Such was the case last Saturday, Feb. 5. I met two of my girlfriends, Rebecca and Angie, for breakfast. 

The bank's atmosphere invites quiet conversation. Meaningful conversation coupled with a good cup of coffee and a delicious meal shared with great friends invites comfort and peace for the soul. What I'm trying to say is, it was a BLESSED morning!

I want to invite you to take a look around and see what all the fuss is about...
Come On In!
Stained-glass sign above entrance...
Simple wreath adorned with coffee related antiques...
Bar stool seating at old teller stations
The Vault
Guests can reserve the vault for private dining during special events. Dale and I have reserved it for this Saturday to celebrate Valentine's I said, any excuse. ;0)
Table Centerpiece
Sometimes I like to sit and soak in all the wonderful details of the room, like this simple white coffee cup and saucer used as a sugar bowl/table centerpiece. The red bow is a perfect contrast to the black and white checkered tablecloths.

A quaint, corner coffee shop....good friends....tasteful decorations....
a historic building...interesting architecture....delicious food....

I believe joy and contentment come from appreciating the simple, 
ordinary things in life and acknowledging that all good 
and perfect gifts come from the Lord. I live my life with this conviction....and life is good, my friends. :0)
