Trowbridge’s Ice Cream and Sandwich Bar in downtown Florence is featured as one of the “50 Reasons to Love the U.S.A.” in the July edition of Travel + Leisure magazine. Trowbridge’s is Alabama’s representative on the magazine’s state-by-state guide to summer travel. “Because small-town diners can’t be beat. Florence, Alabama, a well-scrubbed town overlooking the Tennessee River, isn’t retro in that faux-Mayberry sort of way. It’s the real deal. And so is Trowbridge’s, an eight-stool lunch counter where, in 1918, Paul Trowbridge began churning and scooping orange-pineapple ice cream. Ask for their trademark egg-and-olive sandwich, and someone will toast it for you in a stainless-steel press. If you order a white-bread banana sandwich, you get a choice of mayo or peanut butter or both.” – Travel + Leisure. The orange-pineapple ice cream at Trowbridge’s is featured on the Alabama Tourism Department’s “100 dishes to eat in Alabama before you die” listing. http://www.travelandleisure.com/slideshows/50-reasons-to-love-the-usa-south-and-southeast
