Rexville Grocery

The Rexville Grocery is a friendly place to stop during a day trip north of Seattle to the Skagit Valley. They make a great espresso and there is a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which to enjoy it. Oh, and you can pick up wine, cheese, and a fresh baguette and get gas, too (but read the sign on the pump carefully). This is very near the winding Skagit River in the heart of the farmlands of Mount Vernon. Bicycle touring is popular in the area, and you can see some riders are stopping for a fresh deli lunch.

We have places just like this in Vermont, too.

sounds fancy yet homey, perfect for me!

I love these old-fashioned places...but I'd expect to find root beer floats, wax lips, and Little Lulu comic books more than espresso, wine, cheese, and baguettes! But hey, they're good, too! :)

Interesting place. I wonder if pumps like that are really legal.

Would love to try their coffee.

Quaint little grocery, tidy with fresh paint, roof and trim. I'd like some of those wax lips, too!

Looks just like little Alabama "filling stations" except we have coffee, Bud Light, pickled eggs and beef jerky.

We have places that look similar in Australia, too. But I wouldn't touch their coffee with a barge pole.

Doubling the pump price would get the vendor into regulatory hot-water over here. He would have to sell at the listed price or get his pump recalibrated.

Nice post ...

Reminds me of general stores in Vermont. Minus the gas pumps.
