Natchez and "The Tomato Place"

This past week we took a girls' trip to Natchez. Thanks to Trip Advisor, we stumbled onto a little gem outside of town! 

From the road, "The Tomato Place" appears to just be this way-too-cute little produce stand with a hot dog stand beside it. It is so much more! Packed into two small buildings from days gone by, this family owned and operated business is so cool. 

The hot dog stand building is actually the kitchen where fresh entrees, sandwiches, and desserts are prepared daily. As you browse both inside and outside the main little building, you will find in this tiny area the best fresh produce, jellies, honey, cookbooks, crafts, and trinkets. There are a few tables crammed inside so you can sit after you have placed your order from the chalkboard. There are also tables outside as well.

We enjoyed the best BLTS ever. The sweet potato fries and okra were to die for. The bread pudding was a treat, too. If I had not been stuffed, I would have loved to try one of their fresh strawberry banana smoothies!

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and the chance to just relax in such a quaint place. Thumbs up and up and up..........
