March 7, 2016 ~ The Pink Cadillac Diner

"Some people make the world special just by being in it."
~Anonymous


The Pink Cadillac Diner has been in Rockbridge County for years and years. It had changed hands a number of times, but a fellow teacher and her husband are running it now. On our way back from a race that Bud ran in in Roanoke on Saturday, we stopped off for apple pie and ice cream. It was SO good! I just had to pull out my camera. It looked too inviting to pass up.

Yes, that is Buddy. The old Cadillac has been there as long as the restaurant.

The fencing is the cutest in its pink and green.

The two top pictures are of the ice cream bar.
You know what the third photo is....yes, my plate of apple pie, ice cream, and caramel syrup.



Coca Cola memorabilia was located everywhere, but this little jukeboxes on top of the big vintage Coke machine really brought back memories. Have you ever been to eat where these were on the tables?


The Manure Movers of America sign hung between the restrooms. So funny!
I thought the "Please Wait to be Parked" was pretty clever. Sorry the picture is not real clear.
I think I am going to have to buy me one of the pink coffee cups. They are so cute.

  2. I love apple pie with ice cream...specially my own homemade apple pie. LOL And yes, I remember those little jukeboxes at the tables. I used to actually work at Columbia Records where we made the actual albums, cassettes and 4-track tapes. On Friday nights, my friend and I always went to this truck stop that had those little jukeboxes. And they served the best hamburgers on the planet!

    I would sure want to stop and eat there if I were near!

  10. If you ever get this way, we will eat at Carmen's Diner here in town( check it out on google) - food is great too. The little jukeboxes are right on the table and they work. Got some quarters. I have heard of The Pink Cadillac restaurant before, but never saw any photos. Love it. I am with you girl on the ice cream etc.

  11. Oh what a fantastic fun place; I love those signs, too funny and clever. I really need to go on a sign-hunt; I really miss that meme when I don't have anything.

    And could you email me a piece of that pie next time you're there -- caramel syrup included please ;>)))
