We have a mystery.....

We have Classic Mushroom Soup (vegan) and Harvest Split Pea Soup (vegan), both of which are gluten-free.

From the panini grill we have The Virginian, ham, turkey, havarti and whole seed dijon and the Apple Alexander, Granny Smith apple, honey and brie grilled on a ciabatta sub roll.

So on to the mystery! This postcard arrived in yesterday's post at the cafe.















Now while I'm sure you will agree this is a fine image of President William Taft the real mystery is the message.



For those of you who may not remember presidential trivia, William Taft was a large man - over six feet tall and in excess of 300 pounds. And after an unfortunate incident in the bath (where he required the assistance of six men to help him get out) he had a 7 foot long, 41 inches wide tub installed at the White House. I'm thinking if that tub is still around it will make a fabulous winter pool for a certain two little girls.

Clearly the sender has discriminating taste in coffee. And who doesn't thrill at the idea of a secret admirer - albeit a pushy one.
