Huggin' Molly's And Abbeville's Vintage Goodness

Friday, April 22, 2011

Last month, we had lunch at Huggin' Molly's in Abbeville -- it was fabulous.  From this article in East Alabama Living:

The restaurant is named after a local legend... “Huggin’ Molly was supposedly seven feet tall and as big around as a bale of cotton,” remembers Jimmy. “She’d walk the streets of Abbeville at night. If she saw you, she’d chase you down, give you a huge hug and scream in your ear.”

If you know Great Southern Wood (YellaWood) and the Yella Fella from commercials, the owner, Jimmy Rane, is behind so much of what makes Abbeville so special and unique.  He purchases old buildings, fixes them up, then puts them to use.  That's what he's done here with Huggin' Molly's.

A *fantastic* soda fountain:

Shugie couldn't resist sitting at that beautiful marble bar.  The boys had grilled cheese sandwiches with different sides, I had a fried green tomato sandwich, and Av had fish.  We tried an order of fried cheese biscuits which were so good -- and we brought those home for a snack later.

They had an original To Kill A Mockingbird movie poster in our dining area, too:

This is more of downtown Abbeville.  That great Southern Oil Company building, bottom-right?  It looks like an old fillin' station, but it's really an office building for GSW.

...and these vintage signs are just retro perfection:
