Coffee And Food

Coffee and food
Did you know that coffee and food compliment each other?  According
to some research we came across, there are combinations of
coffee and
food that really relate to your taste buds.  Imagine that!

Just like what wine goes with what food, now we learn that it's the same
for
coffee.  It makes sense to me that some things taste good together,
like
coffee & chocolate.  Why not other foods?
So, we would like to share some of that knowledge with you, to enhance that wonderful past
time we call "Dining."
