One of my favorite fictional characters is Ron Swanson in the NBC hit “Parks and Recreation.” One of his many quotable moments is when he says to his friend Leslie, “There has never been a sadness not cured by breakfast food.”
Mr. Swanson, I have to agree. Perhaps that is why I absolutely love a little place located just over a mile from my house.
It can provide me an order of biscuits and gravy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! This gem is the White Rose Café.
White Rose Café is a downtown Union landmark. It was originally a single-pump gas station serving White Rose gasoline.
Its location on what is now Main Street, but what was once Highway 50, made it an ideal spot to fill up.
