December 7, 2009A Time Capsule Cafe – Starburst Formica and Great Food
My parents recently bought a small house on a lake in Woodruff, Wisconsin. It is really cute, in a retirement community and they love it. And the best part is, they have a yellow 1970s bathroom. Pictures of that are coming up later this week.
In the meantime, here is pictures of the Wood’s Cafe, which is right down the street from my parent’s new place.
Pretty neat, isn’t it? This cute little mom and pop cafe has been owned by the same family since 1963, and while the inside isn’t exactly the same as it once was, it is pretty close.
Here is a picture of the cafe from the 1960’s. Don’t you just love it???
And here is the cafe today.
The floor has changed somewhat, but the counter is pretty much the same, which is the great part.
The two cute guys are Tom, of course, and my Dad, who was really excited to find a place where he could get good corned beef hash for breakfast before a fishing trip.
Here is the AMAZING Formica on the counter. Tom was dying over this and I can’t blame him. I would give my eyeteeth to be able to put this in our kitchen right now!
Another shot of the counter and the great barstools.
Our food, nice and hot! Looks good, doesn’t it? And I adore the vintage plates! The pancakes were super good, by the way and had real butter on them. I love Wisconsin.
So, if you come up to Northern Wisconsin, make sure you stop by the Woods Cafe in Woodruff, especially if you are crazy about vintage!
