This past weekend, my friend Tim Stanley and I went to Downtown Historic Rosenberg in Rosenberg, TX for a photowalk. Of course, we did not embark on our adventure without grabbing a Lime Phosphate at Another Time. If you have never been to Downtown Historic Rosenberg, then you are missing out. At Another Time, they have an old fashioned soda fountain where a “Soda Jerk” makes soft drinks the way they should be.
Tim and I were taking pictures of Downtown when we found a restaurant called the Ol’ Railroad Cafe. One of the owners, Daniel Ornelas, invited us inside. Daniel took us on a tour of the building where his restaurant is located. They not only have a restaurant with great food, but they also have a wine bar, antique shop and a theater. The building is home to the first elevator ever built in Rosenberg. What’s really cool about the elevator is that it was used to move cars to the second floor when the building used to be a Ford Dealership. I can just imagine moving a Model A or Model T Ford to the second floor and walking around the showroom. That would have been cool to see.
Tim and I plan to go back soon; afterall, that kind of food is drawing me as I speak. If you are in the area, then you should stop by the Historic District of Rosenberg and check out their shops and restaurants. It’s like stepping back into time.
