Locals and other folks-in-the-know make sure to begin their meal with what the Peppermill Cafe is known for: Roasted Red Pepper Bisque.

It’s a creamy carrot-colored soup but you won’t find carrots in it. Or tomatoes. Or anything else for that matter. Nothing but roasted red peppers make their way into Peppermill Cafe’s memorable signature soup. Everyone loves this unique option. I can say that it’s something we haven’t seen (or tasted) yet.

Really, it’s a great way to get introduced to this amazing small Indiana town dining option. What better to go with soup than a sandwich? There’s a lot of yummy sounding sandwiches here. Our youngest, age 3, requested a grilled cheese sandwich, Kid #2 went for a warm Ham and Swiss Cheese sandwich (with lettuce), but as for my husband, Jeremy, and I? Well. We couldn’t make up our minds that fast.

I already saw that there was homemade dessert on the  menu so I decided to save room by ordering the Spinach Gorgonzola Salad. Fresh baby spinach was tossed with Gorgonzola cheese, bacon, red onion, and topped with crisp bacon and a sliced hard-boiled egg.

Served with raspberry vinaigrette and homemade, fresh-baked beer bread it was as lovely to look at as it was to eat. Even now as I write, I can almost taste that amazing bread. It was so incredibly good. I love when a restaurant goes above and beyond like that. It’s a special touch.

My husband, Jeremy opted for  the grilled Italian sandwich. It was a glorious combination of ham, pepperoni, provolone cheese, salami, banana peppers, black olives, red onion, and then some. It was served on fresh-baked Italian bread. In case you haven’t realized it yet, the bread at Peppermill Cafe is something else. It makes that sandwich. Happily though, my husband let me have a bite. Mmm! Now that’s a great sandwich.

As awesome as the meal is, you have got to save room for dessert.
