AdaBlue and Barbeque

I may never cook again!

Well, at least not while I’m living here at Sunset Isle RV.

Just a month or so ago, the owners opened up a little cafe at the campground, and let me tell you , this is not a “Granny’s Kitchen” type of operation.

The name of the cafe ~ AdaBlue ~ comes from its color (see photo below), and from the fact that it is the newest addition to the campground.

The cafe is open to accommodate most schedules ~  from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Early risers will enjoy piping hot coffee, with breakfast favorites like melt-in-your-mouth croissants filled with fluffy eggs, cheese and your choice of meats, or pancakes and sausage, biscuits and gravy, and made-to-order omelets.

Or if you are one of those folks who like to eat breakfast at dinnertime, no problem ~ breakfast is served all day at AdaBlue…and that’s just the beginning!

This cafe is quickly gaining a well-deserved reputation for the most tender, best-tasting barbeque around, and I must admit that I am a believer.

I could eat their pulled pork all day long and never get tired of it.

While Keith and I were in the southwest, we were on a quest for the best tamales and chile rellenos around.

Now that we are in the south, the quest has changed to barbeque.

I am a sauce lover. Everything from ketchup to Hollandaise, and normally it would take a slathering of barbeque sauce to get me through a pulled pork sandwich.

So, I approached my first AdaBlue pulled pork sandwich with trepidation.

But, somehow they manage to infuse just the right amount of their secret sauce into the tenderest pork around, before serving it. So, no extra sauce is necessary. Amazing!

In addition to the pulled pork which is my personal favorite, the lunch and dinner menu includes ribs and chicken, hot dogs and grilled ham and cheese, along with daily specials like the top notch Reuben sandwich I enjoyed earlier this week, with sides of flavorful baked beans and coleslaw.

And, if you happen to have an active sweet tooth, you won’t go away disappointed. Choose from tempting fresh-baked delights, soft serve ice cream, shakes and malts, or homemade FUDGE in traditional and wild flavors like key lime and orange cream.

It’s surprising how they can pack so much great food into this sweet little cafe that also serves as the campground office, but they do it with flair.

And, since Sunset Isle RV and AdaBlue sit on the only road into and out of Cedar Key, it’s easy to find if you are in the area. Believe me, it will be well worth the stop.

Plus, if you come by, I just may be the one to greet you, as working in the office and cafe is part of my workamper duties, and I love it.

Hope to see you soon!
