Z and I spent Friday night hanging out with his grandparents. They're so fun, and we love doing things with them. They decided to drive our way, so we thought we'd show them a little bit of downtown. Care to take the tour yourself??
We ate at one of my personal faves- the Coldwater Cafe. The history of this place is just so neat. It was previously a bank, and has kept a lot of the original architectural features. There are private dining rooms in old offices, and even a dining room in the old vault.. which is where we decided to eat.
I have to hand it to whomever designed this place- it's beautiful! This was a hutch/wall display had the prettiest stoneware & china! (Sorry for the fuzziness!)
Although I'm not in love with the wallpaper, the bathrooms are beautiful as well, complete with REAL towels to wipe your hands, and a little settee.
Even the toilet paper is arranged all pretty!
On Friday and Saturday nights there is live music played in the lobby/bar area. (fuzzy again)
Some of the decor:
Perhaps my favorite part of the entire cafe is the entry, with this gorgeous old safety box display.
After dinner we took a stroll around town. There was a jazz concert taking place on a blocked-off street. I loovee jazz so we stopped and listened for a bit.
Free carriage rides were offered for kids.
There are some beautiful looking antique stores.. too bad they're only open til 5!!
I just loved the window displays in these stores, so I snapped some pictures! Too bad you can't really see them! Forgive my amateur skills!
This woman was doing watercolors of the town on the sidewalk.
It was a great night! We just love our little town. If only we were looking at buying a house here.. but unfortunately, real estate prices are sky-high. Not exactly a newlywed's scene.
Here's the final group shot we snapped before heading home:
