The Home Front Cafe (warning PIC HEAVY!)

This is another post constructed off my beloved camera card that I thought I lost and just recently found!!  So yes, the pictures are older, last winter.  But I was so excited to show you one of our favorite places! :)

Welcome to the Home Front Cafe! It is one of our favorite places to eat lunch on Saturday's after swimming lessons.  This is in a little town called Altamont about 2 miles from where we live.    The same woman who owns the resturaunt had a consignment shop in the side that is now the "ice cream parlor".  So I have been coming here for years!  First shopping and eating with my mom and now still eating and enjoying ice cream with my husband and kids.

This is the kind of place that makes you warm and fuzzy inside.  In the winter it's cozy and in the summer you enjoy ice cream.  None of the glass or cups match.  The silverware and dinnerware doesn't either.  But that is part of the appeal.   The food is homemade and delicious, so they could serve it on paper plates and  no one would care!!!   

The decor is vintage which of course I love.  There is a strong WWI and WWII theme inside.  My husbands grandfather's picture is adorned on one of the "soldier" walls.  So my boys are very proud of that and usually tell other diners nearby that is there grandfather. :)

I love to order the Waldorf sandwich, which is chicken salad with grapes and other yummies!   My husband usually orders a burger and my kids LOVE to eat breakfast anytime of the day here.  And if they aren't in the mood for breakfast, they have a grilled cheese and the best fries in town!  

All year 'round they have a dessert table with all kinds of cakes and pies to choose from.  But in the summer months they have homemade gelato and it's  Delicious! They also have soft serve as well.  

Did you notice Johnny's tag out?  LOL!  We had just come from swimming lessons and daddy didn't pay attention to the way he put his shirt back on!  OH well :)

They have recently started opening for dinner on Friday's because lunch and breakfast are such a success!  It's a limited menu of a few dinner items and it's still packed everytime we go!

I wanted to share this special place with you! :)

Lovely pictures, what a wonderful place, so full of nostalgia. I would be so wrapped up looking at the decor I would forget to eat!

Definitely my kind of place. Thanks for sharing.
