Cache Junction Beanery
Growing up, we didn't get the chance to eat out much, but I do have memories of Dad taking us to the Beanery at Cache Junction. It was one of the highlights of growing up. I think I even took a date out their once. The Beanery, was of course known for their white beans and ham. They of course served other dishes. It was a typical restaurant of the day, with older women as waitresses, and pies and dinners and working men. Originally it was their for the city and men of the railroad. Over time as the railroad activity decreased, it still had enough draw that people would drive there from throughout the valley. It seems like they had a special bread, I can't remember if it was rolls or homemade bread, but there was something. I know on one visit I ordered pork chops, which was my favorite as I was growing up. With a family of eight, I am sure we caused them some problems for seating; but they were always able to accommodate us. They had a bar, but we never sat there. We always sat at a table.
