The Bird Nest Cafe, Better Known as Wanda's




This is Wanda. She is sweet and warm and everything you would expect out of the owner of a small southern cafe. Wanda was a waitress for years at another local cafe. When it closed down she opened her own cafe and named it "The Bird Nest Cafe." Most of the people we know who go there call it "Wanda's."

David and I enjoy going there on Saturday mornings for breakfast and on Sunday afternoons for the plate lunch special. Talk about your down home southern cooking. We had the pork chops yesterday. Wanda told us they were"as tender as a mother's love." That's pretty dog gone tender. We thoroughly enjoyed them (fried of course) along with the green beans, real mashed potatoes with cream gravy and peanut butter cake. YUMMY! I had coffee and David had sweet tea.

Tell Wand a blogger in faraway Oz loves her description.

And Dave, mate, I hope you;re drinking Darjeeling tea - that's where I went to boarding school.

If you want a peek, have a look at my `D is for Darjeeling' post from late last year and you'll get the picture!!
