Where Was I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Submit Answers in Comments (below). Answers will not be revealed until a winner is selected.

There aren’t too many diners like me around anymore, in case you haven’t noticed. I was located in a prime spot, if I do say so myself. Back in the day there wasn’t a lot of fancy eatin’ spots downtown with talented chefs like today. Your challenge is to name the two cross-streets on the corner where I was located. Where Was I?

Winner: Pam E. McLeod - Orange Avenue between State Street and Main Street.

This diner was along Orange Avenue between State Street and Main Street. Slim was the cook who later moved to the Coffee Caroselle (sp). Given Sarasota Cycle and Key was on State Street, we ate there often.

This was along Orange Avenue between State Street and Main Street. Slim was the cook. Given that dad's shop was on State Street, we ate there quite often. Loved it!!
