West Virginia’s Winter Flavor

Wintertime in Almost Heaven is certainly a joyous occasion. However, sometimes it can be a bit difficult to confront the cold. If you’re searching for some comfort on these chilly days, look no farther than the embrace of West Virginia’s winter flavor.

Coffee & Hot Chocolate

Greet a wintry day in West Virginia with the warmth of a steamy, ceramic mug. Even a sip of freshly-brewed coffee or deliciously rich hot chocolate will make these chilly days a whole lot warmer. Whether you prefer coffee or hot chocolate, Stoked Coffee has a way of making both options sound like the right choice. Also serving up both of these delectable drinks is Charleston’s very own Mea Cuppa. A cozy atmosphere combined with a simply tasteful cup of Joe will have you warmed up in no time.

Soup

Throughout the years, soup continues to be a classic winter favorite, and rightfully so. This hearty dish provides comfort on even the coldest of days. David’s Downtown offers a variety of specialty soups, such as french onion, tomato and broccoli cheddar. If you’re looking to put a spin on the classics, Ogawa Japanese Restaurant has you covered. Both their udon noodles and spicy ramen will warm you right up.

Freshly-Baked Goods

On a cold day in Almost Heaven, you’ll find that these treats are best served straight out of the oven. At Starlings Coffee and Provisions, cookies, pastries, bread, and muffins are made fresh, in-house. On these crisp mornings, this shop can easily become a part of your winter commute. Another way to challenge the winter chill is with one of West Virginia’s signature pepperoni rolls. The warmth that they radiate on a cold, winter’s day is certainly like no other. What better way to experience this warming effect than at the Country Club Bakery, “Home of the Original Pepperoni Roll”?

Pasta

Combining savory sauces and handmade noodles has a way of warming both body and soul, making pasta a perfect meal for a wintry day in West Virginia. With a specialty in homemade Italian cuisine, dining at Figaretti’s Restaurant will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Jim’s Steak & Spaghetti House‘s famous spaghetti can also cheer you up on a dreary day.
