The Nook & Brewha Coffee House – Columbia City, Indiana

My wife Marcela and I find ourselves in the downtown part of Columbia City, Indiana. It’s by choice, of course, since I needed to have a couple of The Nook’s Coney Dogs.

The Nook opened up shop way back in 1971. Well, granted 1971 ain’t that far back considering some of the stops I’ve made on road trips, but it is impressive.
The Coneys will only set you back about $1.75, which is incredible. The chili sauce is a family recipe and, with good reason, is kept secret. I had my Coneys with sauce, mustard, and diced onion, the way every good American should eat it: sorry guys but no ketchup for me on hot dogs.

The Breaded Pork Loin is a thing in Indiana, but I never did try one. My interest was piqued when I saw Breaded Cheeseburger on the menu. I had seen it on one other menu while in Indiana. The breaded cheeseburger is a regional thing burger specialty. This particular breaded cheeseburger was not housemade, though.

I didn’t care much for it, but it’s a famous sandwich on their menu. I wonder if anyone in the state of Indiana makes a freshly battered version, that would be worth exploring.

Hit up The Nook for an awesome Coney Dog and the super friendly service.

Brewha Coffee House

Marcela also stopped into the Brewha Coffee House right after The Nook while I waited in the car. She ordered and thoroughly enjoyed a Spice Chai Latte with Almond Milk, whatever that means.

Meanwhile, I was the recipient of some creamy fudge for my patience, so it worked out well for me too.
