While I’m away at school, caught up in the busyness of the city, I find myself reminiscing about the simple life. I absolutely love the city life, but I miss my small town. Greensburg is very fortunate to have some very unique shops and restaurants with people that make you feel like a part of this community, no matter if you’ve lived here your whole life or you’re visiting town for the first time. That’s what I love about Greensburg— no one is a stranger.
In these shops and restaurants, you’ll also find the upmost quality in services and goods. Each door holds unique treasures and wonderful people. Another great asset of Greensburg’s local shops is the atmosphere. The walls have so much personality that I highly recommend going to the local stops to catch the scenery.
One of my favorite local shops is the Log Cabin Florist. This place wears multiple hats: restaurant, floral shop and gift shop. Although it serves many purposes, there’s more to the story of the Log Cabin. Walk in the front doors you are transported into time thanks to the atmosphere. There are antiques on the shelves and the walls look like the inside of a cabin. The friendly face of owner Rick Jackson also adds to the flavor of the Log Cabin. He’s there to greet every person who enters the front door and spark up a conversation.
With this night of making New Year resolutions, make a resolution to go visit the Log Cabin on a Saturday. Come in to enjoy the atmosphere. Take some time for lunch. My personal favorite was the fish sandwich, but everything on the menu is superb! Make sure you save room for dessert—the Log Cabin has homemade fudge. I’m partial to the caramel fudge, but the blueberry cheesecake is great as well. Also take some time to browse the antiques on display, the trinkets for sale and the vast flower collection. The Log Cabin is a unique treasure of Greensburg, and I guarantee that you can spend quite a few lovely hours there feeling cozy like you are actually in a cabin in the woods.
The Log Cabin is open Monday-Friday from 9 AM-5 PM and on Saturday from 9:00 AM-2 PM.
