Crackin’ The Barrel

Last week, I went to Cracker Barrel for the first time.

My mom and I went to have a big breakfast since I had to take her to a doctor’s appointment that involved an entire days’ worth of fasting; to say the least, we were ready to stuff our faces with the tastes of this country-style eatery.

I was surprised to find a country store as soon as we walked in. At first I thought we had entered through the wrong door and ended up in the store next door, but as it turns out, all of these restaurants are designed like this.

The very first Cracker Barrel opened in Lebanon, Tennessee. Currently, there are 719 locations around the United States — mostly in the south — and only nine locations in New York State. We ate at their 350th location.

I liked the set-up and design of this restaurant a lot; there was plenty of space on the table and the walls were covered in old photographs and history, which I loved. We had a table near a giant fireplace that added a unique aspect to the dining room.

My mom and I both got a breakfast combo. I ordered French toast, smoked sausage and scrambled eggs. My mom had pancakes, turkey bacon and eggs.

Every breakfast comes with a cute little bottle of syrup, which they serve warm. It was adorable! The food was delicious and I was glad I got to have some time with my mom.

Before we paid the bill, we looked around the shop, which had lots of cute apartment decorations! If only I was returning to college, or else I would have a reason to get some new décor!
