FORT PAYNE, Ala.-- Earlier this month, the Vintage Cuban Sandwich from Vintage 1889 Cafe, was placed on the Alabama Tourism Department’s list of 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama.
Vintage 1889, is owned and operated by Dr. Steve and Lynn Brewer.
“When I created the menu, there were two sandwiches Steve insisted upon, the Muffuletta and the Cuban. We have limited storage space for our restaurant (soon to be remedied by our new kitchen to be finished in a couple of weeks), and I didn’t have space for bread just for the Cuban, so we used our Telera roll. Steve created a special sauce for the Cuban he wanted to use and it honestly “makes” the sandwich. It brings the flavors of the smoked pork, ham, and Swiss cheese together for a distinctive taste” stated Vintage owner, Lynn Brewer.
“September we will have been open for eight years. That seems impossible and it hasn’t been easy in such an “out of the way” space. We are just thankful to be open, serving our community and trying to serve the best possible food….AND support a local music scene on the weekends. We love Fort Payne,” concluded Brewer.
Vintage 1889 is located in the historic W.B. Davis Hosiery Mill, located at 151 8th Street NE Fort Payne. The hosiery mill was built in 1889. Stop by for casual dining inside or enjoy the cool fall weather, either on the patio or in the historic courtyard. Local musicians will serenade you while you enjoy the fine menu.
