Sunday Serendipity

My husband and I like to take the old fashioned "Sunday drive." With a sense of adventure and no set plans, we explore places around Atlanta, visit little off-the-beaten-path places, small towns and attractions.

Today we found, thanks to a dear friend, Classic on Noble, in Anniston, AL. The Sunday Brunch is worth the drive. The restaurant is in historic downtown Anniston in an old building that used to house the Kress 5 &10. (However, there are rumors that the building once served as a house of ill repute, but we won't discuss that.)

Now if are like me, you may be thinking.... a nice restaurant in Anniston? Alabama?  I am here to tell you, oh yeah.

The place is elegant but not stuffy. The tables are beautifully set. The waiters are abundant and attentive.

The food stations are located in various areas around the room, so people aren't all packed into one huge line. I just hate that with a buffet, don't you? 

Beautiful salad bar.

The shrimp were very fresh and from the gulf, according to our waiter.

Homemade soups and breads.

Carving stations (a man pleaser) and hot vegetables made Southern style.

Fresh flowers everywhere.

A touch of whimsy over the dessert bar. Gorgeous chandys made of the same glasses they use for drinks.

A chocolate fountain. This was a big hit with the children who were just fascinated by the amount of luscious flowing chocolate. I spoke with one little one who said, "This is all I eat when I come here." 
(I bet his mother loves that!)

I fell in  love with this cabinet holding silver drink ware and the lovely display of silver and mercury glass.

All in all, it is a fun and delicious experience that is well worth the drive. We will be back. And soon.

Go for a Sunday drive next week, you never know what you might discover.
