Fried Green Tomatoes Movie Cafe

This was a wonderful stop and must-see for any [FGT] movie fan. The (pricey) food was really good, the stores were adorable, and it was a very nice place to eat and walk around. It gets busy, so it's best to go when they first open and then take your time walking through the quaint stores.

It is a short distance off the interstate in a very small town of Juliette. we saw men playing banjos and gift shops. We could not convince the teen girls to go in. For sure going next time.

I loved the movie so I had to go take photos of this cafe. The businesses on the block are in bad shape, but still operating by the looks of it. We arrived too late to eat so we can't say anything about the food, but we wanted to try it. Maybe next time.

The town has thrived since the making of the movie and it was packed for the restaurant. We waited about 30 minutes and it was well worth it. Best tasting fried green tomatoes.
