Before we left Brevard today, my parents took us all out to eat lunch at a new place in town, "Mayberry's." Yep -- that "Mayberry's" -- as in, Andy and Barney and Opie and Aint Bee. (Yes, I misspelled that on purpose, because how else would anyone pronounce her name?)
This is an adorable restaurant, and the couple who own and run it have put a lot of work into it. They stripped the floor back to its wood, and raised the ceiling up to its metal. Beautiful! They placed period advertising on the walls. And the food - lovely! I had a Ginger Chicken sandwich and their Cheesy Potato Soup. The ginger was fabulous. They have interesting sandwiches that aren't so high-brow that you're scared of them, or so common that you feel you could make it as well at home.
We dropped in at St. Philip's, definitely the most elegant of the stores. And we found this gorgeous treasure! A doll's house! All hand-made. Five stories, including the attic! Here's the front:
Here's the inside:
And instead of stairs, an elevator! How creative!
