This was not far from our night's lodgings so we went in for a light dinner just before 7 p.m. The two waitresses seemed very harried and they were out of things they shouldn't have been out of -
soup, and ice cream! (I wanted a malt.) The place also looks a little shop-worn - the bench where we sat was torn, for instance.
The décor is all railroad, and you can definitely watch the big trains go by while you're dining here -- the tracks are just the other side of the street.
We settled on a cup of chili (standard stuff) and a ham and cheese on rye (good).
We had the apple pie and the cheesecake for dessert. Excellent excellent excellent. The pie is obviously homemade, very fresh -- perfect crust, apples baked just right. The cheesecake was exactly right - not too light or too sweet.
We had noticed huge dinner rolls going by on other people's plates so we asked if we could get two to go, to have with breakfast the next day. The waitress said they should still be fine for breakfast, because they had just been baked that evening. She also showed us the breakfast biscuits - also huge! - which she said would be fresh the next morning if we preferred biscuits. We settled for the rolls and they are amazing! They are flaky almost like a croissant, but in a standard dinner roll shape - and about the size of your fist! They were SO good!
I'd stop here next time we're in Flag just to buy the baked goods. Surprisingly, they don't seem to be set up to sell just the baked goods, but the staff was very helpful and accommodated us.
