Lovin, one of my earliest memories was going downtown with my mother to Rich's and Davison's and eating at a large cafeteria on Peachtree. I cannot remember the name of it, except that it was a double letter name. I keep thinking A&W, but that is root beer!

Do you know the cafeteria I am talking about? I always got jello cut in cubes in a tall dessert dish with whipped cream interspersed. If I scratch my brain really hard this is one of my earliest memories, probably 3 or 4 years old.
