Gordon's Always Hits the Spot...
Especially when I am in a pinch for time. Friendly people, and always a photo to be had inside or out.
Joseph W. Beach said, "There is indeed, perhaps, no better way to hold communion with the sea than sitting in the sun on the veranda of a fishermen's cafe."
You can hold communion with the bay by talking to the watermen at Gordon's six days a week, from before the sun comes up until 9:00 pm. When you visit Crisfield, be sure and pay a visit. A lot of history to be found at Gordon's. It's one of our treasures.
Note: These are not watermen (they were out working when I took this photo). The watermen can be found early A.M. or right after they unload their day's catch, or on a really windy day. But you don't need watermen to enjoy the flavor of Gordon's. It is truly a slice of Americana.
Be sure to try Gordon's coffee. It has reputation of being the best coffee around. Because Gordon's is closed on Sundays, people buy cups of it late Saturdays so they won't have to go a day without their Gordon's coffee.
