We’ve been on the bike again, touring through the backroads of Georgia. Rutledge was our destination – east of Atlanta, near the more lauded city of Madison. There were two places that drew us to the tiny town, Rutledge Hardware and Yesterday’s Cafe. The wonderful old store was featured in Smithsonian Magazine – and is “all that a hardware store should be”, says Mike. You could spend hours inside sifting through piles of merchandise that you never knew you needed… The buttermilk pie is the main attraction at the Cafe. The other items on the menu, a pretty traditional “meat and three” are good, but the pie is the thing. If you have never enjoyed it, it’s kind of like pecan pie without the pecans. I’ve included a before and after picture to verify our opinion:)
