Frozen Fruit Plate at the Silver Caboose

Posted By on Wed, Nov 7, 2012 at 3:10 PM

The chill in the air had me craving a vegetable plate for lunch and I just so happened to be near the Silver Caboose in Collierville's charming town square.

There is plenty to choose from on the menu — hamburger plates, chicken salad ("Caboose famous!"), turnip greens with pot likker, etc. And as I was mulling over the vegetable options, I spotted among the luncheon salads the Frozen Fruit plate ($9.95).


What to say? This is a time capsule of a lunch. The frozen fruit is sort of like a sorbet and very good. The finger sandwiches are pimento, egg salad, and olive and cream cheese (a combo I'd never had before) served on gooey white bread. .
