Foodie Find: The Main Street Buzz Coffee House & Café in El Dorado

01/27/2016 10:18AM ● Published by David Norby

Imay have been driving down Pleasant Valley Road not noticing that The Main Street Buzz Coffee House & Café was there, but the sweet little shop had a steady stream of regulars coming in the whole time I was seated. Owner Brookee LaMunyon is by far one of the warmest people I’ve ever met, and that warmth really permeates the place—paint color, delightful heater temperature and all. Always down for a fancy sandwich, I ordered the Roasted Turkey with everything. What’s really special about this place is the choice of homemade spreads: pesto, chimichurri, chutney, and garlic-artichoke-Parmesan. If you guessed that I chose the latter, you were right. The phenomenal spread melded well with the shaved turkey, dark leafy romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes, roasted red bell peppers and salty capers. I couldn’t put the sandwich down. Once I’d devoured it and my Chai Latte had cooled down enough, I sipped from my mug, listened to a podcast, watched the world go by out the window, and enjoyed what interactions I could pick up between the three kind sandwich makers and hungry locals. And for patrons who are more in the mood for a morning pick-me-up, the espresso menu looked lovely! Plus, who could turn down a croissant breakfast sandwich for $3.50?
