Florida's Oldest Diner - Angel's

We stopped by for a coffee-to-go just to go inside Angel's. They have partially covered parking. Inside they have 45 rpm records on the wall and shirts for sale. The few locals inside were a bit friendly. The biscuits did look delicious.

For an authentic Old School roadside meal, you can't beat Angel's. Make sure to try their house specialties: the Pussalow (chocolate milk with added vanilla syrup, served over crushed ice) and the Black Bottom Sandwich (a mix of hamburger, egg, and bacon served on a bun with burger toppings). A meal for two typically will be in the $10-12 range.

Palatka is a quaint town with gas-burning street lamps. The diner is adorable. Basic diner food and the old fashioned ice cream shakes are great!
