If You’re Ever In Cape Charles…

Last week, Motor Man and I had reason to be in Cape Charles, a small, old, beautiful waterfront town on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.  Although we’d visited the area several times in the past, this was our first time really spending any time in the town. We were unexpectedly there around dinnertime, so I did a quick Google search for local restaurants.

We decided on Kelly’s Gingernut Pub, located in an old bank building, circa 1907.

We were seated in the vault, where the ceilings are 16 feet high.

According to their web-site, some of the wood used in the bar area was from nearby buildings and is over 200 years old.

This room reminded me of a parlor.   Through that doorway and to the right is where Motor Man and I were seated.

We loved the atmosphere at Kelly’s, and our food was delicious. I had grilled chicken and steamed veggies and Motor Man had a BLT.  We each had enough of our meal left for lunch the following day.

I regret that I don’t recall the name of our server. She was so personable and efficient and made our dinner even more special.

Isn’t it nice when you just “come across” a really charming restaurant?
