My Sister and I: A Most Welcoming Restaurant in Bridgewater,

It was a cold, gray winter day and I was feeling miserable
with a cold. What to do on such a New England day when you're running
errands 40 miles from home?
The inviting, slightly weathered hometown restaurant appearance of My
Sister and I Restaurant on Main St. in Bridgewater, Mass., offered a
possible temporary solution. With an old Coca Cola sign above this
diner-like spot, handwritten specials of the day on the window, and
warm inside ambiant light providing potential respite from this drab
February day, My Sister & I looked like the perfect place for a cup
of chicken soup and some hot tea.
The friendly waitress welcomed me within seconds, and within minutes
served me an incredibly tasty cup of chicken soup, "straight from the
crockpot." That chicken soup and some black tea, in their still
unexplained medical ways, relieved my congestion as well as my
trepediation about being stuck in an unfamiliar town for 60 minutes.
My Sister and I epitomizes the
townie restaurant -- a bacon and eggs,
muffins (amazing chocolate chip!) sandwiches and soups, coffee and
desserts type of place (with dinner served only on Friday nights) that
clearly brings in a loyal crowd. I was the only one in the restaurant
that didn't know somebody else. Despite being the outsider with a runny
nose and bloodshot eyes, the staff and an older crowd were most kind to
me, initiating "hellos" with sincere smiles -- even the gruff, old man
at the counter whose 1950s-style hat cast a shadow over most of his
face. As I was leaving, a college crowd entered, thus validating that
an old place like My Sister and I probably also satisfies the younger
crowd attending Bridgewater College right around the corner.
My personal and work responsibilities will bring me back to Bridgewater
on a regular basis. File My Sister and I restaurant as a place
bookmarked for many more returns, based on that very first visit.
My Sister and I is located at 42 Central Square, Bridgewater MA. Tel.
