I had an occasion to be in Pulaski, Tenn., today and was looking for a place to enjoy an afternoon cup of coffee. Traveling down a street near the town square I saw a sign for a cafe and bakery and quickly circled around to stop in.
The Common Ground Cafe and Bakery was open. It's home is a beautiful 100-year-old house.
Since it was such a gorgeous autumn day, I decided to sit on the front porch and enjoy my beverage.
When I went inside to pay, I noticed they sell their own made-on-the premises breads -- french, olive-rosemary, Parmesan-jalapeno and several sweet breads such as banana nut:
They also offer for sale a brand of tea I was not familiar with: Yerba Mate. Since I'm always game to try a new one, I asked the nice lady behind the cash register for a recommendation and she kindly offered a sample of each to take home and try before I buy. Wow, not every day you get such an offer!
I left with my six packets or tea and a loaf of bread and noticed that someone has a very green thumb (this is Sweet Potato Vine):
An ancient vehicle was parked in the cafe's parking lot. Wow, been a long time since I've seen one like this!
Driving back through the town's courthouse square, I managed to shoot a few pictures. The one below is the courthouse:
I have a new app on my iPhone that takes a panoramic view. Here's my debut photo (the sign was in my way; makes it look like two pictures unfortunately; I'm learning!):
Not sure is "National" is an old theater or retail shop. Beside it is Reeves drugstore.
I particularly liked the "Spitting on Sidewalks Prohibited" sign.
The town is Pulaski is a neat little place. Have you been to any interesting places lately?
