HOME FRONT CAFE: Altamont, NY by JuneNY

I read about the HOME FRONT CAFE in Altamont in Big Chuck's book UPSTATE NEW YORK in 100 WORDS or LESS and knew I had to go to it!

Betty and I met up in Oneonta and headed out Route 88 to Altamont and arrived right at lunch time!  INDEED, this is a very neat place.  WW2 and other military stuff all around, and also lots of items from the 40's and 50's, many of which look familiar!    We enjoyed our lunch.

After lunch we crossed the street to the ALTAMONT FREE LIBRARY which is in the old train depot.
The building has been very well preserved.  Inside we noticed a gingerbread depot designed after the depot.  We drove down Main Street just to see the huge old houses which are very well maintained.  We did a lot of oohing and ahhing, but I could not stop to take pictures due to cars behind me.  

We headed out towards Duanesburg and stopped for desert at the CHUCKWAGON DINER on Route 20.  We each ordered a desert and we shared:   coconut cream pie and pecan pie.......both were very good.

We didn't take 88 all the way back to Oneonta, we took Route 7 for a while before getting on 88.
