Since this was only a few years after the movie, there were still quite a few little shops in the downtown area around the cafe, as well as a flea market / antique shop in the old grist mill across the river (the concrete structure can be seen in the background as a train goes by in the movie trailer).
I really enjoyed this little day trip in the summer of 1994, and I made sure to get this postcard to remember it by.
As the sign painted on the window says, the Whistle Stop was known for their fried green tomatoes. We, of course, had to go in and give them a try. I was a little excited since I had not had fried green tomatoes before. My mom and grandmother thought they were very good. As for me, I don't plan on ever having them again. :-)
