Roadside Reads: The Traveler Restaurant - Union, CT
Well it took my being bedridden by a nasty cold-flu thingy to finally update the blog. Sorry for the wait, Shoestringers! As promised here is a glimpse of another great used bookstore I visited recently: the Traveler Restaurant in Union, CT. That's right, I said restaurant. The Traveler is a sort of diner meets used bookstore and every patron of the restaurant gets to take 3 FREE books. Talk about a shoestring reader's paradise!
|The quaint sign heralding "Food and Books" looms over I-84.|
|Travelers may also want to browse the neighboring antique shop.|
|In addition to the volumes on display here in the main dining room there is a lower level. Sorry I didn't get more shots of the rustic and cosy interior --I spent most of my time picking out books!|
Check out the Traveler's Google+ page for more pics.
|Photographs of famous authors line the walls (a bit blurry oops!).|
Above: Robert Heinlein, Leon Uris, Robin Moore, George Plimpton, Isaac Asimov
|This old children's book was a lovely find with an eclectic hodge podge of illustrative art.|
|Our window table had a great view! And the food? Swell inexpensive mom & pop fare. |
I recommend the hot turkey sandwich with mash!
All in all, you couldn't ask for a nicer spot to set a spell whilst New England leaf peeping!
