A New Café at Mark Twain House

A New Café at Mark Twain House

This is not the café, of course. It's where the great man himself had his lunch.

Have you heard? There’s a new café/snack shop at The Mark Twain House in Hartford. The café, called Nook Farm Nook, serves sandwiches, salads and other snacks for a light lunch or break between exhibits.

The café is located in the Visitors’ Center and on nice days you can eat at a table outside. The sandwiches (roast beef, turkey, chicken salad, ham and cheese) and salads (tomato, mozzarella and basil, and Summer Fruit with yogurt) are prepared by Hall’s Market of West Hartford. There are also desserts and gluten-free items, and plenty of Huckleberry Products (candy, pretzels, teas, licorice whips) plus the popular Huckleberry Fizz soda, available only at the Mark Twain House. The price is well under $10 for a wholesome lunch.

The Nook is currently open Tuesday through Saturday 11 to 3:30, but it will be open seven days a week “in the very near future,” according to a press release.

Mark Twain House & Museum, 351 Farmington Ave., Hartford, 860/247-0998,
