An unexpected trek……….

To St. Paul gave DH and I a wonderful opportunity to discover a fab new eatery (What???? You say we really didn’t “need” another……?? I beg to differ, if I may!). The location is in the picturesque town of Cannon Falls(MN), just south of St. Paul, traveling on Hwy 52. “Nick’s Downtown Diner” harkens back to the days of soda fountains, poodle skirts and old-fashion malts. Located a 1/2 block off the town’s main street, this slip of a place almost escaped our sights! 013   Doesn’t this front just beckon you????? Well, if it doesn’t, maybe this will……..012   Reading the sign, do you see a quality trend here??? Homemade, fresh, hand crafted, old-fashioned………..Yup, our kind of place! Let’s go inside……..

Black/white checkered flooring and tin ceiling…….love…..

Some reeeeeely old signs on those walls…..gas: 22.9…Wow!!!!!

And the day’s specials…….major yum…….001   Well, just sayin’, if you weren’t ready to eat something before you entered, reading this would get you thinking!!!! We opted for the fish special…good choice!002    I was just saying to DH that all I see on Fb and the blogs is food these days!!!!!!!!!   Sorry………………….007

A last interior ‘shot’ and we’re done. Such a bright spot on a very dreary, overcast Friday!

So, if you’re ever in the area and are in “need” of some real food, check out Nick’s in Cannon Falls……I don’t think you will be disappointed!

OK, now back to quilting……………………………………

    Oh i would definitely have wanted to stop and check this place out. The front just begs a person to cross that threshold!

    I bookmarked this post …. I’m going to start making our road trip plans after the holidays. So maybe we’ll give Nick’s a try!

      Even though this was a “first try”, the menu looked wonderful and it was very hard not to stare at the other orders as they came from the kitchen……they all looked very good and prepared with care.
