Huber's Cafe Restaurant Review: Huber's still has all the trappings of the 19th-century saloon it is today: mahogany paneling, a brass-railed bar, flocked wallpaper and huge Gothic mirrors. The current owner traces his ancestry to a Chinese immigrant from Canton who stowed away and was shanghaied from a rival saloon by one Frank Huber. Shamelessly retro, Huber's is famous for two comestibles: a flaming Spanish coffee, prepared tableside, and a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. The Spanish coffee is stronger than it appears; there is far more alcohol in the cup than caffeine. If ordered iced in summer months, the potency somehow remains the same. Turkey also makes appearances in a piccata, a Marsala, and a classic potpie. Those who are poultry averse may enjoy maple-glazed ham, steaks, fried oysters, halibut or smoked salmon fettuccine. House-made beer bread is a match for all dishes. A full bar includes an adequate wine selection. For dessert, the classics reign, with cheesecake, brownies, and a seasonal fruit cobbler.
