Ashland Coffee and Tea

Last night we went to Ashland Coffee and Tea to hear Page Wilson and Reckless Abandon (their version of Low Rider was unexpected and a hell of a lot of fun). We are talking about a non-smoking intimate music venue in the heart of Ashland, folks! With no less than 7 trains rolling through in a 3 hour period, further adding to the charm. While settling in we ordered dinner from the casual menu. The menu had beer and ale along with a limited selection of wine. All wines were under $23 a bottle with both a regular and rotating selection. We chose a 2005 Louis Latour Pinot Noir from France. A light red, but decent enough to go with a CafĂ© Nibble of Bagel Chips with a creamy olive spread, The Ashland Panini (turkey, pesto, Swiss cheese, and sweet peppers), and a Lemon Dill Tuna Wrap (tuna, capers, lemon, dill, sweet onion, and sweet peppers). Other food offerings include soup of the day, salads, various grilled cheese sandwiches, and the quiche of the day. All food items are $9 or under. If wine or beer is not your thing, Ashland Coffee and Tea offers the bottomless cup of coffee, coffee drinks (the latte/mocha type), and even milkshakes. And don’t forget a cookie or brownie for dessert. If you go when it’s cold, dress warmly or bring a sweater. The “Listening Room” can be a tad chilly. What a great little gem and well worth the drive!
