Voted Best Panini by Me

Posted in All Real Bites

On September 11, 2015, I visited Jessie Street Java in Rushford, Minn., to meet with our new reporter slated to cover all the happenings in Houston.

Since we expanded our distribution into Houston a couple years ago -- adding another 1,400 households to our circulation -- we have made a commitment to provide news coverage of city council and school board meetings.

I met with Beth McManimon on this important day to discuss what was involved in covering governmental meetings along with tackling human interest stories for Houston.

And, while we met, we enjoyed food and conversation. I ordered the Macaroni Grilled Cheese panini, highly recommended by the staff at Jessie Street Java. In addition, I washed it all down with a iced raspberry mocha.

While waiting for my lunch to arrive at our table, I scanned the ambiance of the dining experience. The owners really put together a lot of thought into this. The booth seating was framed with real barn boards. Everything you’ll find in this establishment is one-of-one. This is undoubtedly the best little coffee shop in Fillmore County. Honestly, they may want to consider expanding into some other communities throughout the region. They have a good thing going in Rushford.

And, while I absolute enjoyed my Macaroni Grilled Cheese panini, I will definitely have to make a trip back to Jessie Street Java to try their other paninis: Nutella, Portabella Mushroom, Pulled Beef, BBQ Chicken & Bacon, and Chicken Pesto.

For a glimpse of their menu, check out www.jessiestreetjava.com, and then head to Rushford with an appetite for delicious.
