The day Idgie Threadgoode and Ruth Jamison opened the Whistle Stop Cafe, the town took a turn for the better.
It was the Depression and that cafe was a home from home for many of us.
You could get eggs, grits, bacon, ham, coffee and a smile for 25 cents.
Ruth was just the sweetest girl you ever met. And Idgie? She was a character, all right. You never saw anyone so headstrong. But how anybody could have thought she murdered that man is beyond me.
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is a mouth-watering tale of love, laughter and mystery.
It will lift your spirits and above all it'll remind you of the secret to life: friends.
