Last weekend was my daughter's Parents and Family Weekend at college. So my husband and I spent Friday and Saturday with her. On Saturday morning we took her and some of our longtime friends to one of our favorite restaurants that we ate at while we were in graduate school.
Evans Fine Foods has been in Decatur, Georgia, since 1946.
I can't count how many bacon and cheese omelets I've eaten there! In fact, it's the place I first met my then-boyfriend's parents who became my in-laws.
Our friends, who live in the area, had heard a rumor that the place was closing. Sadly, our waiter confirmed it. (And I just saw this article today that shares the fact of the closing as well as the restaurant's history.) I was so sad to hear the news. I snapped this shot on the way out the door to remember by.
Since we now live an hour outside Atlanta, I hadn't eaten there in years. But Evans will always be a part of my history. In fact, I hope I'll hear that some group has come to the rescue and will keep the place open.
Do you have any restaurants that hold special meaning to you?
