High Hat Coffee House

Isn't this one of the cutest little places? It's a little teeny, tiny coffee shop a little off the beaten path near where I live called "High Hat". They have pictures inside (maximum capacity 5 and that's including the barista!) with historical photographs back in the the day when it used to be a gas station. Thank goodness someone saw the potential for it and converted it into this unique coffee shop. In the warmer months they set up tables and chairs outside to leisurely enjoy your latte outside.

Wanna go for a cup of Joe?

I'd meet you at that cute place in a heartbeat for a cup of coffee! But, I confess, I'd probably meet anyone there -- it's just such a neat place.

What a great new life for a gas station! I know of one that's now an antiques shop. Some of those little roadside buildings they used to put up for gas stations were really darling. This one's especially nice.

And yes... I am really lucky to have some of my Grandmother's things. I have some of her furniture, and bits and pieces of her dishes and "things," and am still getting more as we go through my parents' house. We have a really large family, but most didn't live close, or know Grandma all that well. We were closest to her.

I think I picked up some of my love of pretty china from my Scandinavian ancestors. Presentation was important, even for the generations that really didn't have much to work with. They still made things lovely for family and guests.

Nice to meet you! Your blog's terrific! You write well, I like that.

Oh, Nancy -- that's one of my favorite places to stop for coffee when I'm in the city.

That is so amazing that the building used to be a gas station. There is a darling building just like this in the town I grew up in. It used to be a gas station, it has been empty for years and I have been telling my mom for YEARS that it would make the cutest coffee shop.
