After all those doughnuts, believe it or not, I had a powerful hankerin’ for a piece of pie, so our next stop was a place everyone recommended called The Herrick House & Mulberry Café. And from what the locals told me, Mary Ann Shurlow’s pies reign supreme.
Even though we went for the pies, this quaint little restaurant in a Victorian house serves a lot more than that. The front is a little home decor and gift shop with a wonderful assortment of things you suddenly realize you just can’t live without, and in the back is a cozy little eatery that serves fresh, local and lovingly prepared foods. We tried a whole bunch of different plates and pies and decided the one thing we loved more than anything else was everything.
The Herrick House & Mulberry Café is exactly the kind of little eatery you’d expect in a town this nice. Mary Ann is really doing it right. Her attention to detail is incredible, and she totally made us feel right at home.
