Straight-away Cafe'

On US Highway 9 south of Black Mountain, is one straight portion of road, known as the straight-away, among many a switchback on the way to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure.  And there's a nice little restaurant there, which has live music on Sunday afternoons.

We sat out on the porch, under this strange sign. I guess that nobody really wanted it.

For a while people were also sitting on this section of patio under just some trees, until it rained.

It's a place to relax and not be in any hurry, and we did enjoy our food, as well as some super company. I don't know when I've enjoyed conversation more!

Quote for today:
Knowing where you came from helps bridge the gulf that divides your past from your future.


  1. Looks like a perfect Sunday afternoon, and I love those signs.

  2. Hello, looks like a nice place, good food and company. Sounds great! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day! Have a happy weekend ahead.

  3. I'd certainly be inclined to stop in there.
