Only in Scottsdale: Breakfast at the Gas Station

by Heather
I was looking through old pictures and found this one from 2010; isn't it just the prettiest centerpiece for an Easter table? I had the floral department of a local grocery store, AJ's, put it together for me. For pictures of this year's table, go back a few posts to my Spring Table and Decor on 3/11/13.
I felt I had to throw this picture in to hold your attention -- the next few pictures will have you wondering what the heck I'm doing.
I'm taking you to a gas station for breakfast. Just trust me, okay? And stay with me; it gets better!
Gas pumps; pallets of "gas station" stuff...
Mmm...fresh market?
Okay, still looking like a Circle K or Quik Stop...
but then you look to your right...
People are eating breakfast (and lunch and dinner later in the day)...
And there is a chandelier...
And a very cool light fixture of bulbs and rope...

Just the place to meet up with dear friend Susan and her sisters Sally and Cathryn
And friends Melissa and Jackie and all of our spouses.
Notice how we're sitting "snowbird" style: the women all together and the men at the other end of the table. At our ages, we know that we're really more interested in talking to the other women and it's easier if we're all sitting together.
Here are a couple of examples from the breakfast menu.
The food tasted as good as it looked!
If you want a cup of coffee or something to go, there's this delightful counter.
Just in case you need a little wine for later in the day...
Just in case you need to purchase a little gift for a friend or yourself...
There are other places to perch and eat while you're waiting for your car to be washed.
Or perhaps you want to play a game of chess...
The little display below reminds you that this is a gas station.

If you're ever in the neighborhood (Bell and 94th; north Scottsdale, east of the Ice Dean, north of Westworld), stop by for a little refreshment while you fill up your car or get it washed.

Have a wonderful rest of the week and a great weekend!
Love,
Heather

  2. Cool. It's a pretty unusual setting. We have gone to that gas station for lunch. It's no gas station food! My daughter likes playing the chess game.

    I also like the one at Pinacle Peak and Scottsdale road that's been there for years: The Old Country Store..

    1. The Old Country Store is where we usually stop to gas up our motorcycles. Haven't been inside for several years though. Must stop in for breakfast one of these days!
      Just need to avoid the intersection of Pinnacle and Pima today -- water main break and sinkholes have closed the area!
