Located on First Avenue North in downtown Irondale, Irondale Café, the original WhistleStop Café, has been serving traditional Southern food at the same location for years. This is traditional Southern restaurant where the customers order their food cafeteria-style, then carry the tray to a seat. The café became famous to the rest of the world when it was the setting of the book and film Fried Green Tomatoes. Though judging from its large and loyal clientele, it became famous in Irondale many years before that for its quality and consistency—and cornbread rolls!
