Cobb Lane

Okay, I admit it....the world of Birmingham has indeed passed me by.  In the three years that we have lived here, I had never been to Cobb Lane until today.  It was charming.  There is a lot of other words that I could use, but not many that fit it so well.  My friend M. has been wanting to take me there for a while and since this is my birthday month, now is as good a time as any.  The lane itself is very quaint, cobblestone.  The courtyard is very shaded, restful, and overhanging with greenery.  The food was "fairy"-fare with a little rustic, southern charm mixed in.  The waiter was from the "west coast" (which doesn't mean California) and was maybe a little too talkative, but very full of dry humor and fun.  And being the naive person I am, I never quite knew when he was kidding and when he wasn't.  I must say, the company was great as well....

Thanks, M. for a perfectly lovely luncheon (can I call it that?) in a magical setting.
