On Monday of last week, we made a trip to Berlin and Walnut Creek ( Amish country). It was just my hubby and I and Kory. My other two had to work, plus, they’re not a big fan of Amish country!! We started out by going to Rebecca’s Bistro and Tea Room for breakfast. I absolutely love this place! If you ever make a trip to Walnut Creek, this is definitely a place you must stop at. The food is wonderful ; not your typical Amish fare. I usually go on a Monday or Tuesday and have never had a problem getting a table, but if you go at the end of the week, they suggest you make reservations.
It’s established in an old home with wood floors and beamed ceilings. One room even has the original logged walls. Very charming!! I took what pictures I could while trying not to come across as a “tourist”! lol
This is the room we were sitting in.
Even the bathroom is charming!
Here are a couple of outdoor pics:
I paid $35.00 for the one on top and only $30.00 for the bottom one with legs. And let me tell you, the bottom one is HUGE!! It’s 15 1/2“ in diameter and 14“ high. Both will get makeovers that I will share with you later.
My purpose for going to Amish country was to find prim treasures, while my hubby’s main reason was to buy food!! We stopped at a bulk food store where we bought trail bologna, assorted locally made cheeses, candied peanuts, a block of chocolate and other wonderful goodies. The most exciting purchase, at least from Kory’s point of view, was the Fry Pies. They are a “must buy” whenever I go. The last time, she picked Strawberry w/cream cheese and Lemon flavored pies and was disappointed that they didn’t have them this time. Although she was happy that they had the Peach flavor that wasn’t available the last time.
Here’s our assortment of Fry Pies:
I was hoping to visit a couple of stores that I normally don’t have the time to stop at during the school year because I have to make sure I’m home to get Kory off the bus, but it was 90 degrees and humid and Kory wilted like a flower!! She was happy with breakfast, buying a videotape at the antique store and getting her Fry Pies – after that, she was done with shopping and was extremely grumpy, so I didn’t make it to the other stores. Oh well, maybe another time.
I mentioned in my last post that my hubby and I were working on a big project. I’ll show you a sneak peek!!
So stay tuned!!!!
Until next time. . . . .Kris
