I never did make it out to their old location...it was a bit inconvenient and with three children, my days of aimless wandering in the country are somewhat limited. I was beyond thrilled to see them move into the old Carriage House on Dobbs St. in downtown Hertford.
I went with my three children, ages 6, 8 and 10. The two youngest ordered the 5 dollar kids sandwich plates. They chose ham and instead of the usual cheap white bread one gets at most local places, their bread was a delicious, crusty, panini style bread. The ham was high quality, shaved and just salty enough. They ate the Utz chips that accompanied their sandwiches with gusto.
My eldest child went for the "Build Your Own" sandwich, opting for a hot roast beef on the same bread. This meat was also high-quality and fresh. He was VERY impressed with his meal.
I ordered the Cuban sandwich, which until recently, I could only have at home, or perhaps in Miami, FL since no one else does one locally that I am aware of. It was SUPERB. The sliced pork tenderloin, the juicy ham, the mustard, buttered bread and chopped dill pickles. PERFECTION.
The children all had sweet tea like proper Southerners while their half-yankee mom opted for hot tea instead.
For dessert, we all shared a slice of lavender-orange olive oil cake. It was ethereal and would be a perfect addition to a cup of tea if one just wants dessert. The only complaint here would be 7 dollars for a slice of cake...seems a bit high for the area but it didn't take away from the experience of eating it. ;-) I recommend it. (If the idea of lavender as a food ingredient startles you, it shouldn't. If done properly it only enhances your experience.)
All in all, I am pleased and I feel very comfortable recommending this restaurant. The owners seem to appreciate both fine food and the area which can be a difficult thing to merge.
