I love the new version of Mother Hubbard’s Café (read Jimmy Boegle’s review of the joint here), and have eaten there frequently during the past couple of months. It’s the only place in town brave enough to add red chiles to the biscuits-and-gravy, and the quirky little details they layer on traditional diner fare keeps me coming back for more.
This week, the quirky little detail is the addition of Cheerwine, which, if you haven’t heard, is quite the rage these days. Once only available in the Southeast, this cherry-flavored beverage has garnered a cult following in recent years, and Mother Hubbard’s Café is the only place in the state that currently has it on tap.
Even Krispy Kreme is in on the Cheerwine craze, and recently started filling doughnuts with syrup flavored like the beverage.
