Pasties?pastry pies stuffed with meat and potatoes?originate from Cornwall and Wales, where local miners have eaten them for lunch for hundreds of years. Miners have always savored the hearty filling that would stay warm throughout the day and tossed the braided pastry crust, which served as a handle for sooty fingers. When those miners traveled the globe, they brought pasties with them to as far flung locations at Australia, Spain, and Butte, Montana.
Today, Joe's Pasty Shop sells pasties stuffed with flank steak, potatoes, and onions with a savory seasoning. The shop's pasties are so good, in fact, that they were highlighted as a go-to meal on the Travel Channel. Try one original style or with a helping of chili, cheese, and onions poured on top. You can also stop by for a selection of sandwiches including ham and swiss, tuna melts, and cheeseburgers.
Each morning, the smell of fresh-brewed joe fills Sweetwater Coffee, mingling with the scent of just-baked cookies and scones emerging hot from the oven. But smell isn't the only sense that's indulged here; as eyes slowly open wider with every sip of a latte or americano, they take in the colorful works from local artists that hang on the shop's walls. Meanwhile, tastebuds luxuriate in the flavors and textures of sandwiches and salads constructed by one of the friendly staffers. Of course, the cafe also indulged minds hungry for knowledge by offering complimentary Wi-Fi to its customers, who can use it send emails, get homework done, or run searches on how to remove coffee stains from laptop keyboards.
