Saturday morning we drove 20 miles to have breakfast at the Prairie Winds Cafe. It opens at 7:00 am. We arrived at 9:15 to standing room only. The cafe seats 56 which according to Parade Magazine is 4 times the town's population. There are only 5 houses in the town proper.
The Pairie Winds Cafe is in the old Mercantile building which at one time had also been the post office. The current post office is next door. Molt sits on the prairie and has more antelope than people.
The old Mercantile shelves are lined with antiques. From my chair I saw an old Cracker Jack tin and an extra large tin that once contained Baking Powder. An assortment of milk glass and carnival glass graced other shelves.
According to their guest book people come from miles around, every state, and 42 foreign countries to have breakfast Saturday mornings. So what draws the crowd? It's the live music that plays from 9:00 - 12:00. They call it Bluegrass Saturday Breakfast. Each weekend is a different band. They play for tips and the owners feed them breakfast and lunch.
Next time we'll be there early.
