Dive-In: The Garage Cafe


The Garage is still a hidden gem in Birmingham, though it’s been in business for more than 25 years. Even with all of the choices of places to eat in Birmingham, it remains one of my favorite places–especially in the fall when the summer heat is fading and being replaced with cool breezes in the afternoon and evening. What better place is there to sit and have an amazing Rueben and a cold one in the afternoon. I still get the feeling I have walked into a place in the South of France, or near Rome, or Florence with the old statues and treasures strewn about ,as if, these old things could be found anywhere. So dive into an old haunt and relax in the secluded outdoor seating, have a sandwich and a drink and enjoy one of the most unique places in Birmingham.•
