As carrot cake rises in the oven, its sweet scent wafts from the kitchen to mingle with Louis Armstrong’s timeless trumpet trickling from the dining room's speakers, enveloping Mike's Tortoise & Hare Cafe & Catering in a homelike feel. The eatery's namesake Mike Clawson—a Connecticut transplant from North Carolina—strolls past the dining room’s fireplace on nights like this, greeting his crews of regulars and stopping off to introduce himself to new faces. Mike opened his restaurant in November 2010 to bring the slow-cooked tastes of his beloved home state to locals. The only thing that makes him happier than whipping up soul-warming plates of southern comfort food is the personal connections he makes with patrons who come in each day to tuck into hearty plates of his catfish, collard greens, and other family recipes. His passion for food began early in the kitchens of his grandmothers, whose recipes grace all 12 of the café's mouthwatering desserts, from rich banana pudding to a decadent chocolate layer cake. Since the café is BYOB, Mike encourages patrons to bring along a favorite brew or chocolate fountain to accompany their meals, and invites all to attend his increasingly popular wine dinners starring quaffs of locally made wines.
