the main attraction of juliette is the whistle stop cafe. the cafe was originally a general store built in 1927 and was used as the location of the whistle stop cafe in the film "fried green tomatoes". after the production of the movie the general store was reopened as a cafe. this touristy restaurant serves southern cuisine and of course fried green tomatoes.

Make sure to check on the hours and get yourself in for a plate of Fried Green Tomatoes at the movie version of the "Whistle Stop Cafe." The food is GREAT!!
I went during the Christmas/New Year season and there was no wait but rumor has it that you better get there early in tourist months.
