Maggie's Buns & bits of downtown Forest Grove

Maggie's Buns supplied the cinnamon rolls for the first of the 5k series I did, so I wanted to check them out for a meal.

I enjoyed this practical advice, unexpected in this homey restaurant.

Puffy painted glass covered tables!

We each ordered breakfast and a bun to share.  All came at the same time. I couldn't get Matt to leave the bun alone so I could take a picture.

Here he is, having already tasted the bun.  He got a multi-ingredient omlette he loved and I got dill eggs which I loved.  The potatoes and bread were delicious too.  But that cinnamon roll?  Transcendent.  Worth traveling for.  Stop by, any time you are near Forest Grove.

Back on the street, I was interested in this building.

Which is now (also?) a Praise Chapel.

We stopped to read the various messages on this trailer.

And cracked up at this message.

Oooo, Maggie's Buns looks fantastic! I love homemade cinnamon buns, and dill eggs sound really good too. Why have I never thought of making those before? I'll have to see if I can find a recipe.

I want to lick my computer screen for that cinnamon bun. I love them and they can be hard to find. Well ones that aren't dry.
