is the town’s second oldest restaurant, established in 1955 by local shop owners Emily and Louise. Thus the name. The shop originally opened as a chocolate shop. The two women invented Em Le’s Famous French Toast. The bread is dipped in a delectable batter and served with powdered sugar, cinnamon and sliced almonds. I am here mid afternoon and peek over the dutch door.
The staff is between meals and taking a little rest before the dinner crowd arrives.
I turn the corner and start into the court.
The next shop I see is one I have already blogged about. It is the colorful , art filled studio and gallery of Katy Sharpe Kathy Sharpe Studio & Gallery .
Kathy works in oils and water-color and does charming needlepoint canvases.
Her light filled studio
and her artist’s touch with the plantings outside
have really enhanced what used to be a “plain jane” courtyard.
