Honey Camomile Tea Latte

You cannot say enough about the benefits of Camomile tea, but when you add the healthful benefits of honey on top you have a doctor in a cup!  Our Honey Camomile tea is a wonderful option which made from Organic Egyptian Camomile tea brought to you by Art of Tea, and combined with local honey.  Knock it up a notch or two by making it a Tea Latte to add the milky smoothness of a Latte without the caffeine rush of espresso coffee.

Pot of Tea – $3.50

Tea Latte – $2.50

Tuxedo Latte

A great choice for the chocolate lovers out there.  A dose of both Monin White Chocolate and Dark Chocolate syrup, and the richness of Land of a Thousand Hills Vooba blend makes for heaven in a cup!  You can feel good about your choice because of the commitment of Monin syrups to bring you a natural, chemical free range of flavors.  Top this off with the Collaborative Trade commitments of Land of a Thousand Hills, and it is a win-win for everyone.

Available by the cup or bowl.  Served with bread, or upgrade to a bread bowl.

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich

Come enjoy our famous barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwich today!  We smoke our pork shoulders to perfection over a natural lump charcoal and hickory wood to achieve the wonderful balance of smokey, spicy, and juicy tenderness.  Adding to this perfection, we serve it all on a freshly baked yeast roll made onsite in our bakery ovens.  Top this all off with your choice of a side of hand-made coleslaw using real mayonnaise (not from a jar), or baked beans*.  This is sure to satisfy.

We raise our own hogs on our farm in Catawba, so when seasonally available we will serve a “locavore” special from our own pasture raised pork as well!
