Exploring Muskogee

I have found a sweet place to stop and relax in Muskogee! It is called Harmony House –  Eatery and Bakery. The tables are covered with bright old fashioned tablecloths and the settings mix and match like the salt and pepper shakers. The proprietress has created a charming little hideaway in the front rooms of this fine old mansion house.

A corner cupboard displays china teapots. Large windows let sunlight in through white lace curtains. Can you believe this great huge front door? The windows were over sized also.

I ordered the Wednesday special which was Chicken Tetrazinni with a fresh delicious salad, hot rolls, and iced tea. There was a treat of four quarter cookies of different flavors arranged on a saucer at each plate so to tempt one to purchase a dozen from the bakery. A lady dining at the next table was served a strawberry cupcake that was a work of art. Even though the cookies I ate (oatmeal with raisin and walnuts) were delicious, I wished I had ordered a cupcake.
 
This is one of the dining rooms. A porch is being renovated and fitted for outdoor dining and breakfast will soon be added to the luncheon menu. A drive-in window will allow you to purchase bakery items. The stained glass bird art piece covered a large window.
 
 
The Harmony House eatery and Bakery is an
impressive white house with a columned porch and two majestic lions guarding the entrance. It is located at 
 208 S 7th St. (From Okmulgee street heading east, pass the library and turn on 7th and south a block). The phone number is 918-687-8653.
If you know me you know, I loved all the flowers best of it all.
