Part two of my culinary report from Lewisburg involves the Stardust Cafe. 

As I noted in my Julian’s review last week, three names popped up when I was asking around town for a good place to eat.  Since I had chosen Julian’s for our evening meal and Ron was still out on the road somewhere trying to close the gap created when he rode with me “off the back” for the first 21 miles of his 85 mile route, I thought a glass of wine and a snack at Stardust seemed like a stellar idea.

While shopping along Washington Street in Lewisburg WV last weekend, I asked around about the perfect place for a nice meal for two later that evening.  Since I had ridden 21 miles in the Wheels of Hope Bicycle Ride that morning (and Ron was still in the midst of his 85-mile ride at the time), I didn’t feel the need to be overly concerned about calories.  I just burned a bunch off, right?  Specifically, I inquired about Julian’s, the Tavern 1785 and Stardust Cafe.  I was advised by the locals to make a reservation no matter which dining destination I chose.   I received positive feedback about each restaurant with one shopkeeper stating “you can’t get a bad meal at any of our four restaurants”.  (I figured Food & Friends was the unnamed fourth.)

You’re Among Friends – Food and Friends

Food and Friends – Lewisburg, WV

Dan says…

When Jill Cortes featured Food and Friends on the now canceled Food Network show “The Best of…” she wasn’t far off the mark. This long established restaurant in historic Lewisburg has been making friends with its outstanding menu and food for many years. This proud brick building sits on the corner of West Washington and Church.  If it is a busy evening you might find parking around the corner past “The Market”. After your short walk you will be greeted at the front door with a huge selection of Asher Chocolates that scream “save room for me!”
