Corner Shop Cafe: It isn't on the corner
Looking for lunch before we left town, we strolled pretty much the length of Main Street and found the Corner Shop Café most appealing so went in. It is a strangely named as it is not on a corner. However, we found the sandwiches and ice cream excellent and reasonably priced. It is a brightly colored and cheery place and the staff very accommodating.
Rino's Restaurant: A nice song with your supper
We met friends in Trinidad and they had made dinner reservations at Rino’s, which seems to be a local institution housed in a former church. We were not disappointed in our salad, pasta and Nonna’s Mud Cake which is a rich mixture of mocha ice cream, caramel, Oreos, chocolate and almonds. The owners are brothers who were evidently successful with Italian restaurants featuring them as singing waiters in Las Vegas and Hollywood before coming back to their hometown to open Rino’s. We were treated to one song by one of the brothers as well as a nice one by our waitress, both of whom have classic Italian operatic voices. A very nice evening indeed.
