I thought I would give a shout-out to a local business in lieu of my usual Wuss-out Wednesday post (I figured out what day it is, after a little confusion yesterday). I think I mentioned a recent breakfast my husband Steven and I enjoyed at Heidelberg Cafe in Herkimer, NY, during which I was quite interested in some of the lunch choices. Well, I was fortunate to enjoy lunch there on Monday. It did not disappoint.
I got The Veggie: sauteed mushrooms, peppers, onions and eggplant with Swiss on French Peasant Bread. Steven got half a chicken salad sandwich with a cup of French Onion Soup. His sandwich was on French Peasant Bread too. Oh, was my sandwich delicious! Every bite was a wonderful experience. It was a little messy, though, so I ate it with a fork and knife. Definitely worth the extra effort. Steven nicely gave me a bite of his half sandwich, and it was yummy, too.
We purchased a loaf of French Peasant Bread to take home as well. By a major effort of will, I did NOT get any further treats. Not even an English Tea Cookie or the Carrot Cake that sat temptingly on the counter. However, I had better not rhapsodize on the marvelous treats I passed up or I will find myself running to my vehicle and burning rubber out to Heidelberg before they close for the day.
Heidelberg Cafe and Bakery is located at 3056 State Rt. 28, Herkimer, NY, phone number 315-866-0999.
