I spied this little cafe tucked into a row of businesses in downtown Rogers on a Friday night, just a half block from the Rogers Little Theater. I had been walking, heading down to the park to take in dinner at The Rail, but this small storefront caught my eye and its OPEN neon intrigued me.
Twilight was just starting to fall when I crossed the street and went through the door. There weren't many people inside, just a couple of full booths and a couple at the bar. The lady at the bar indicated I could sit where I liked.
I asked if they were still serving -- it was about 7:40 on a Friday, and I thought I saw a sign that said they closed at 8 p.m. I was told sure, they'd still serve me.
The menu seemed pretty robust -- several burgers, a goodly number of salads and sandwiches and quiche. My eye was drawn to the quiche, especially to the Sea Side -- a crabmeat and artichoke heart version. Okay, what the heck.
The Hy-Bread roll, though, was something else, moist and pliant with a good substance and heft, served with real butter. I will have to try these again.
|I didn't try the brownies, but oh, they look scrumptious.|
