and I found this posted under "Rants & Raves"
I think its time to rave about something here in craigslist. I discovered the most amazing place to have breakfast and coffee. Its The Park House Cafe in Springdale (Zion) The service and food is the best I have had any where in southern utah. The view of Zion is awesome. The waitresses are very nice and make you feel right at home. Plus they are some of the prettiest women around! So if you want a great place to eat with great views out side and even better ones inside take your wife or girl friend or just your self to The Park House Cafe!! Awesome Awesome place to eat!!
After stopping by for breakfast today, I would have to agree on all points. I had the best Eggs Benedict ever! I met Sandy, the owner, and asked her about the model travel-trailer that was on the shelf behind bar. "There must be a story behind that?" I asked. At first, she said there wasn't any story--but after a few minutes we both told stories about our experiences living out of a little travel-trailer just like it. Hard times produce good memories!
While waiting for my breakfast I walked outside and noticed an artist painting a mural on the wall. I asked if I could take a photo and she agreed. "What are you going to do with it?" Kristy asked me. "I thought it would look nice on my blog," I replied. Then Kristy informed me she has several blogs of her own. We had a blogger bonding moment. The bond got stronger when I revealed that I too was an artist. Kristy told me how supportive the artist community is here, and stated that was one of the reasons she loves Springdale so much. I thought Zion was a vortex of spiritual energy, and Kristy just confirmed it for me. You gotta love this place!
As we talked, Kristy told me about 'the scarf' which was the inspiration for her mural. She told me another local artist stopped by to help paint (it was his first time painting on a mural) and she had him pose with 'the scarf' for a photo. "When I snapped the shot, he said 'I feel like a rock star!' Later we joked about getting other artists to come down and pose with the scarf." Up on hearing this I was eager to be next. "Get the scarf," I said with a smile. "I want to be a rock star!"
