Lambert’s Throwed Rolls


I realize this is not correct English, but that’s how they say it at Lambert’s CafĂ©.  Neither the Tumolos nor the Lees had ever “experienced” Lambert’s so we decided to drive back over to Foley, AL from Pensacola to meet and have lunch. 


Everybody had a good time and couldn’t believe the amount of food you get.

Charles’s chicken pot pie
Sandy’s chicken fried chicken was too big for the plate.

Then if you dinner with two side choices isn’t enough they have servers walking around with pots and large bowls offering “pass arounds” from tomato and macs, fried okra, boiled cabbage, fried potatoes, etc.  They also have servers passing out apple butter and sorghum molasses for your “throwed” rolls.

I think all of us took home most of our meals and just ate the “pass arounds” and rolls.  Nice experience that everyone enjoyed.


We said goodbye to Bobbie and Sal and drove over to the Old Time Pottery store.  I love this place as they sell a lot of household items and very little pottery, per se.  We found a few things.

Then it was off to Coleman Outlet Store to see if there was anything else we needed at 40% off.  Jim was thinking of buying another Road Trip grill but decided not to.


Then our last stop was to Stacey’s Rexall Drug which has a quaint, old-fashioned soda fountain and those cute heart shaped metal chairs.




We had a wonderful time and finished off the day by seeing the sunset at the Pensacola Elk’s Club.  It is located on the bay with it’s own marina and sits high up on stilts.  It is a beautiful setting.

It had been a good, good day full with great friends, delicious food and many, many giggles.

Remember, you are loved.


  1. I asked for a roll and ended up having it land in my mashed potatoes and gravy and my lap.... Great Cajun boiled peanuts at the Elks...isn't that a great club? Have you been to the naval museum or CJ`s for breakfast in Pensacola?

    1. Ahhh, sorry to hear about the flying rolls ending up in your lap. Sorry, don't, don't like boiled peanuts, but did like the Elks Club in Pensacola Beach very much. Didn't go to CJ's for breakfast, but did have breakfast at The Fish House, Native Cafe and Hot Dog Deli.

  2. Never been to the "Throwed Rolls" place but it sure looks good. I think that chicken pot pie has my name on it!

  3. Betty and I just love Lambert's, Throwed' rolls and all ! The blended sorghum on one of those hot buttered, super large rolls, draws in ! We always have a "go" box and have a meal later from it. That meatloaf is a hard to beat "down home meal".

    1. Larry, I'm a sucker for the apple butter on those rolls. In fact, I did buy a jar of apple butter in their gift shop.
