Laura's Bluebonnet Kitchen

It would be novel to breakfast in the Beaver's kitchen or lunch with Lucy & Ethel, but that's sort of what eating at Laura's Bluebonnet is like. Part diner, part museum, Laura's decor pays homage to the Fifties by showcasing brightly colored Pyrex stacking bowls, colored aluminum drink serving sets, and shiny chrome small appliances from another era. A pastel rainbow of Sunbeam mixers lines the back wall, and a behemoth enamel gas oven or two occupy space that another formica-topped table might. Laura's vintage decor may be the current rage, but her old-fashioned home-cooking won't ever go out of style.
