Fried Green Goodness

Located in the small town of Juliette, Georgia, the Whistle Stop Cafe is a hidden gem. Since I am a fan of the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, I was eager to visit the restaurant that served as the backdrop for much of the movie. However, the Whistle Stop Café did not begin its life as a restaurant. The building was built in 1927 and served the town as a general merchandise store for 45 years. When the town was chosen for the filming of Fried Green Tomatoes, the store began a new life as the “Original Whistle Stop Café.” Now tourists and locals can sample the famous fried green tomatoes and other southern dishes while browsing the nearby stores for movie memorabilia and other souvenirs.
