Driving around one weekend, Lynne and I visited two great places a little off the beaten tracks on both sides of the river.

The first was Brig O’Doon at 239 Durham Road in Ottsville, a charming coffee house we stopped in on after our friend Stephanie recommended it. It offers lattes, capuccinos, espresso, plus good plain old coffee, along with sandwiches, soups and cookies that required an act of will to pass up. Big windows overlook Durham Road, letting in lots of light and making it a pleasant place to sit, read the paper and just while away a Sunday afternoon when you’re in the mood. And right behind the coffeehouse, in the same building, is an excellent natural foods store, Kimberton Whole Foods.

The next was the Café at Rosemont, a Hunterdon County institution. It’s the kind of place that has the feel of an old kitchen, furnished with sturdy tables and chairs, its walls lined with books and soda bottles, the air filled with aroma of coffee during breakfast time. The food here is imaginative – brie and pear omelets were on the menu the morning we had breakfast there – and good, as proved by one gentleman we spoke with who said he’s been having breakfast there for 30 years. The Café’s open for lunch and dinner as well, and features a three-course “Eat Global, Drive Local” dinner each Wednesday night for $24 per person. Thursday nights are Tapas nights. The Cafe’s located at the corner of 519 & 604 in Rosemont.
