Wasn’t the Fall Festival fun? Of course it was! We loved it! And now that it’s over, we are rolling out more good stuff.
First though, for anyone that missed it, before the Fall Festival, we stocked quarts of apple cider in our bottled drink fridge. We’ve also added honey crisp apples and are offering hot cider as a drink on our menu now. And our latest scone is the apple crisp scone. All of these are thanks to the good folk at Soergel Orchards supplying us with the most delicious cider and honey crisp apples to be found.
And because the morning of the Fall Festival wasn’t already crazy, we offered oven baked donuts for the first time that morning. We’ll be serving these every Saturday & Sunday morning. But because the weekend seems so far away right now, this Wednesday, our Why Cook Wednesday? Special will be these oven baked donuts. We won’t have them in the morning. But all afternoon until we close at 8:00, we’ll be baking them and decorating them in black & gold to show our Pirates spirit for their big Wild Card game against the Giants.
We’ve had a few inquiries in to bringing soup & chili on board. This is absolutely going to happen. The unbelievably good run of weather we’ve had has kept this off our urgent to-do list, but we have always been working towards having soup. We have a small amount of construction we have to do in the kitchen area, but we hope to have this complete in the next week or two. Once that is in place, we’ll waste no time making soup & chili part of our daily fare.
In the meantime, we’re adding a cheddar & bacon corn muffin and will be testing out some other corn muffin varieties. We’re also going to add a pumpkin muffin and caramel pretzel brownies.
As for what else is coming, we are deeply opposed to holiday creep. So we refuse to say anything about our plans for a certain holiday happening at the end of October except that our mad scientist types are in intense plotting mode at this very moment.
We can, however, share that the day after that holiday at the end of October, we’ll be hosting an art festival here. So please keep November 1 open on the calendar. Our co-sponsor, Aurochs Brewing, will be on hand. There will be art & music & merriment & other lovely odds & ends.
