Beware of Pickpockets and Loose Women at Phillips Grocery

The sign on the front porch asked us to heed this warning, but we took our chances –lunch with my Mom, Bobbye Wiley, brought us to an old favorite today, Phillips Grocery.
It just feels comfortable in every way. Since we are in the last throes of Summer, I got the BLT to enjoy the sweet tomatoes before they are gone. And maybe I just haven’t been there in a while, but I did not know about the new back patio. Seems like the perfect place to hang with a big group of friends as Fall takes its hold and we are less dependent on AC.
I didn’t have time (or room) for desert, but I love seeing the slices of cake going round and round in the revolving case. It just makes you feel better to know its there, with all the nostalgia that the place is known and loved for.
