The Mud Coffee shop has been a longtime favorite of mine. From the minute I walked into the whole in the wall, closet sized spot to watching it grow into a beautiful “real” coffee shop. The shop sits at the head of town. walking in reminds me of being on the show “Cheers”; everybody knows your name, everyone wants to know what’s going on, what’s the word, or if they don’t know you, they want to know you.
I first feel in love when I was dieting and no longer allowed myself sugar. Val made me one of her special cold pressed coffees and I died after learning it was totally unsweetened! This is brilliant, the best thing since…sliced bread! It’s sweet, flavorful and can be made as strong or as light as you’d like.
Next up we have the breakfast sandwiches: biali, English muffin, sour dough; whatever your pleasure, the breaky-wich is the bomb. The sausage is made next door at Diavola; flavors of fennel seed and delicious pork compliment the tomato, onion, melted and melted cheese that oozes out over your finger as you take the first bite.
This bagel-wich is my new favorite: that same sausage from Diavola, so thick and juicy on top of a toasted pesto bagel with loads of cream cheese, tomato, avocado, onion and salt and pepper. Divine. It satisfies every craving you can imagine at 2:00pm on a day when you just feel the hunger taking over your body. I know I should be careful of how many of these I can or should eat in a week, but something tells me I may have to ask Val to sub non fat cream cheese.
Truth be told, I know food, I am passionate about it anyway. <3
