Tucked away in Hernando, FL is a place called The Cattle Dog and NO you won’t get a dog with baked beans and fries here but you WILL get more than just coffee. The beans are roasted right there! To your specifications. And remember we aren’t talking baked beans around the campfire we are talking about divine coffee. At the holidays I buy Jamaican me Crazy for my friends and I have to keep it in the garage because the aroma is so powerful! But enough about the coffee. James makes the best food in the county. Friday is lobster roll day and you better have your’s reserved! My favorite however is the chicken, pecan and cranberry salad. YUM. On the weekends we have demanded that he bring back brunch. It brought back 7 pounds. I don’t care. We don’t need no stinkin Starbucks around here because we have the Cattle Dog. So Alton don’t miss out just because you have never heard of Hernando before. You can swim with manatees in Crystal River while you are in Citrus County if you want. Just make sure you wait half an hour after you eat before you go swimming 🙂
