Huber's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Unassuming from the outside, Huber's is a place that still has all the trappings of a nineteenth-century saloon: mahogany paneling, a brass-railed bar, flocked wallpaper and huge Gothic mirrors. Huber's 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. It’s 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. You may order it iced in summer months but the potency remains the same. Turkey also makes star appearances in a piccata, a Marsala, and a classic potpie. Those who are poultry averse may enjoy the maple-glazed ham, steaks, fried oysters, halibut or smoked salmon fettuccine. House-made beer bread is a match for all dishes. The full bar includes an adequate wine selection. For dessert, the classics reign, with cheesecake, brownies and a seasonal fruit cobbler.
