Vintage Appliances

The Springhouse is a local dairy farm that has a restaurant / deli on the property.

This is the place that had the pumpkin people that I showed in a prior post and my grandson enjoyed some slides that they set up in a neighboring field in the early fall. I took some pictures of the inside…there are some nice vintage appliances in there.

There is seating outside for dining as well as indoors.

Here is a view to the left when you enter. In the back is a bakery section and farm fresh milk and cheese.  The cases to the right hold freshly made salads and farther on up, their ice cream.

Here we are in the back by the bakery, looking towards the front. This little antique holds some cookie samples ( Yes, they were good ) and pie scraps, etc. Behind me is the bakery section holding very expensive pies, home made breads, etc.

If you are not going to bake your own pie, here is the place to spend the big bucks on one, since it will taste just like Grandma’s. ( nope, I did not buy / I escaped this place with the price of just one dish of ice cream for my grandson : )

Below : more baked goods in the back on yet another wonderful old vintage appliance, a candle section, and gift section area from the other side of the building.

Back to the front, walking in the door…here is a very pretty display to your right.

Another display on a vintage appliance…they are everywhere : )

Two more display areas:

They do a brisk business daily because the food is so good…just like home cooking. When you walk in, if you veer slightly to the right, there is a cafeteria style section set up, and there are about 8 choices each day for lunch, and then a dinner selection. Farther on they have a salad bar set up, and back by the cash register are some slices of pies, etc. for dessert selection.

Like I said earlier, on this occasion, I escaped with just the price of a dish of ice cream…farm fresh :)

    My kind of place! So nice to see that someone rescued those old appliances and now they are displayed so many more can enjoy them. Your grandson looks like he really enjoyed his ice cream!

    What a wonderful shop! I really love all the old pieces they have used in there. And the displays are really fun, too. Looks like somebody enjoyed his ice cream. Tonight I sang to my 2 year old grandson, “I love coffee, I love tea…I love C…and he stopped me right there. He said- I don’t love coffee, Nana. Too hot. I love ice cream. lol Looks like he would get along great with your little guy. xo Diana

    What a warm, happy, “snuggly” place to be!
    There are versions of this place here in town – bits and pieces of it scattered in several stores. It’s the best when everything comes together like the Springhouse!

    What a great shop/market to wander through. All the vintage appliances make great display stands and I’m glad that I don’t have to cook on one of them. Cute grandson with his bowl of ice cream.

    What a wonderful place! I spent one month in Chicago five years ago and I adored the autumn there!

  11. Nice vintage, but the sweets caught my eye. I probably wouldn’t have escaped without the price of at least one pie. :-)

    Deb, this post made me hungry! You have great self discipline. I enjoyed all the vintage appliances. When I first married my grandma gave me her stove and fridge which were quite old (from the 1950’s?) and now I wish I had held on out them.

  13. Eileen says:

    What a lovely restaurant. I would like to visit this place myself someday.. Everything there looks wonderful, baked goods are surely yummy. Happy weekend!

  14. Grandma Kc says:

    I bet that was some delicious ice cream! What a neat place, you could just get lost in there for days. Thanks for sharing it.

  15. Sara D.B. says:

    Oh Deb, that restaurant/deli looks wonderful. I would certainly love the bakery section, and the salads, and the ice cream… Have the munchies now!
    Have a nice week!

  16. Snap says:

    What fun! I love all the vintage appliances. Looks like I could spend a whole day here! So much to see (and eat).

  17. What a fun place to visit. I wish we had a store like that here! Hugs!

    I love a country store like this with nostalgic items from the home and good old fashioned baking. When we purchased the house we are in now I looked at a new stove similar to this one with a vintage look but they’re really expensive.
    That’s quite the colourful dish of ice cream!
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  19. This sounds like a wonderful place to pick up a nourishing meal on a busy day! Your grandson looks so sweet enjoying bis ice cream. I love the vintage appliances used as display shelves–very clever!

  20. Ann says:

    I am sure I would leave with an armload of good food. The little guy looks happy.

  21. Christa says:

    OMG, I would be at that place EVERY day! I can smell the baked goods. It looks very cozy and autumnal.

  22. I adore vintage stores with yummy goodies you can only find there…so special!
