I'm a big fan of hodenattes. It's my go to spot for lunch when I'm pheasant hunting in ransom county. Sandwiches, soups, quiche, and homemade cheesecake are all delicious.
If you get tired of the fried bar food which is prevalent in the area, try hodenattes and you won't be disappointed.
A combination cafe and curio shop. Ate breakfast here this morning. The spinach quiche was light and fluffy, and very tasty. The staff was all very helpful and pleasant. There were lots of interesting items to browse, and they accentuated and establishment's charm.
Hodenattes on Main really is the only show in town when it comes to a place to grab a latte, work on your laptop, have a sandwich and meander through the very quaint gift shop.
I dropped by today on my cross-country road trip. Lisbon was where one of my jobs was in college. So much has changed since those days.
Hodenattes now occupies what once was the community hardware store on Lisbon's historic Main Street. As you step in the door, you're transported back to a simpler time greeted by a gift shop clerk adorned in a classic shop keeper's apron. Old wood floors complement 100 year old brick work on the walls.
You'll pass through rows of cute gifts and knickknacks to find the coffee and deli counter in back. There you have your choice of espressos, latte's and cappuccinos.
I'll tell you- this is an oasis in what might otherwise be an espresso-less wasteland.
My barista informed me the shop hasn't really garnered the attention it deserves from local farmers and ranchers. It's mostly people like me, "Tourists", she says. I sorta cringed when I heard the word-- I don't want to be one of "those!"
I pause here to answer the question running through your mind-- "What is there to see in Lisbon, North Dakota?" The short answer is Lisbon's location as the front door to the Fort Ransom arts community-- why there's even a real Ski Area there!
Back to my narrative-- She further enlightened me tot he fact that Hodenatte's coffee comes from "some sort of European coffee roaster-- I think in Oregon somewhere." I was happy she said Oregon correctly and not "Oree-Gone".
My coffee of the day was a simple 3 shot large Americano. The flavor has a slight dark roast edge to it not quite as much as Starbucks, but not as smooth as some of the up and coming West Coast roasters like Stumptown out of Portland. Still all in all, it was a very acceptable cup.
Not a criticism really, but in the world of sugar substitutes, they only offer "pink" right now, not "blue" or "yellow". But I can live with that.
In the end, I enjoyed my coffee at a table overlooking the cute treasures offered up by their partnering gift shop happily checking my Facebook on their free wireless. Of course I will come back when ever I am in the area.
Now, if my cell/data carrier would only serve rural North Dakota...
