It's about more than food. You'll find out what's happening all around the area...from skiing, biking, hiking, sled dog races to cakes, omelets, breads and soups... maybe even some of the music we live with. The Cafe's Blog is about how we're living right here in Calumet, Michigan and the picture-perfect lands (and islands) of Lake Superior.
It's how we start the day...everyday at the cafe. Bread. This is a batch of our oatmeal bread just out of the oven. To be honest, I don't know when it smells better...just baked or when it's on the rise.
We make two kinds of breads for sandwiches and toast...this oatmeal loaf and our honey whole wheat. Both recipes are variations I developed from a home-batch of white.
What's the best way to eat it?
With real butter....AND, the homemade soup you'll find everyday at the cafe! This picture features the hamburger minestrone.
My favorite way to tackle a loaf of either bread...the ends please. I'll save the middle slices for everyone else.
