The Friendly Toast



Last weekend we took a little shopping trip to New Hampshire (where I purchased the early 50's bathing suit that I so appropriately fell in a pond with) and stopped at The Friendly Toast for lunch! Whenever I'm near Portsmouth this is one of my favorite places to go!

The entire place is filled floor to ceiling with 50's kitsch! There's a huge menu and the best part is that they're open all night on weekends!! AND they're trying to open one up in Boston!

I've been here so many times, but this is the first time I've actually mustered up the courage to take photos. The waitstaff is cute/young/hip kids so I always feel so touristy when the camera comes out. (I was able to snap just a few photos this time, but the courage ended quickly!!)

What a cute place to go! We have some great venues where I live which are decked out in gilt mirrors, old church pews, cracked leather chesterfield sofas etc. I really should take photos too but it can be a little daunting like you say :)

That looks awesome. And I know what you mean about needing a bit of courage to take photos in some places, I need to be in the right kind of mood to find my brave!

Surprisingly enough, there was a place that looked quite similar back in ol' Kansas, my home state. It was an Antique store that featured a restaurant inside and they had 20's bicycles hanging from the ceilings, and boats, and what-have-you. It was really in a middle of nowhere butt-hole town, but it was worth the drive from Kansas City to rummage through ancient things and eventually find the perfect thing that I never knew I wanted for 25c!
