The Irondale Cafe  was the setting for the wonderful novel "Fried Green Tomatoes at the WhistleStop Cafe" by author Fannie Flagg. The McMichael family bought the Cafe in 1972 from Ms. Flagg's great Aunt Bess and owned it for 28 years taking the little cafe from a seating capacity of 32 seats to 260. We spent years serving good home cooking to friends and visitors from all over the world, and have worked on bringing these flavors to your kitchens with our delicious batters and seasonings.
