Moonwinks Cafe

 

continued

One June morning, I tanked up on a bacon-and-egg sandwich zipped up with spicy mayonnaise on a toasted everything bagel. I had a cup of Harney & Sons tea, a silk sachet of Earl Grey brewed in a deep ceramic mug. Thus fortified, I went to explore the trails at Matthaei Botanical Gardens, a two-minute drive from Moonwinks.

Visiting the gardens is like looking through a time periscope and seeing the region's Ur landscape that was a magnet to natives and settlers, with gnarled oaks and swift streams still attracting raucous flocks. It's home to innumerable wildlife-on one walk, after being trapped by a aggressive gander at the trailhead, I retreated to the bank of a nearby pond and watched a beaver swimming. Down-home Moonwinks Café fits right into this sweet countryside.
