On Sunday, October 30, 2011, my wife and lodged at the Café Cimino Country Inn. We were returning home from the Washington, D.C., area and diverted there because we were intrigued by the uniqueness of this establishment. In addition to being a bed & breakfast, this facility includes a professional restaurant that is open to the public as well as its guests and features Italian cuisine. The restaurant is closed on Sundays, but the host and head chef Tim prepares dinners on that day exclusively for his lodgers. We had a very good dinner served by our hostess Melody, who is Tim’s wife, which started with large antipasti that included a caprese salad, a variety cheeses, Italian ham, peppers, and olives. For our entrées my wife had the stuffed chicken breast and I had the trout. Our meal was accompanied by an excellent Chardonnay. The house is old but well restored, charming, and beautifully decorated. Our room was very clean and comfortable. For breakfast we were each served fresh fruits, a quiche, a fried polenta triangle, and scones. All of it was very delicious, and we are still talking about the scones! Tim and Melody were very friendly, gracious and accommodating. They were great hosts who have very interesting backgrounds that they shared with us. We had a wonderful time, so check it out even if you have to drive out of your way to get there.
