The Apple Tree
It's a local institution. They just joined the 20th century by getting a debit machine, after years of resistance. I'm sure the 21st century will never arrive here. They still let regulars run a tab. The owner swears it's nothing as classy as a café, it's just a sandwich shop, but someone made the "new" sign more than a decade ago and so now it calls itself a café.Our favourite menu items are the TCOP (tomato, cheese, onion and pesto) toasted sandwich and the grilled edam sandwich on honey-garlic bread. In summer you can eat at picnic benches in the garden. In the winter you hunker down at indoor tables near the wood stove.
