We were really looking forward to visiting this hidden gem and have been following 801 E. Main's journey from their humble beginnings. Robyn, the owner, has been frying up her famous New Orlean's style beignets from her farmer's market stand, The Poor Porker, for years and has since expanded to an amazing eclectic space at. 801 E. Main St.
801 E. Main St. is an amazing oasis that houses The Poor Porker, Bearcat & Big 6 Trading Post, and Calexico. Everywhere you look, there is so much attention to detail from the arrangement of succulents to the amazing teepee at the center of her oasis. Robyn sees beauty in everything and can repurpose just about anything.
The Poor Porker - Beignets & Coffee
The Poor Porker is where she continues to serve made-to-order beignets and delicious Campfire Coffee. Every topping on her beignets are homemade and is a beautiful powdery bliss. The Campfire Coffee was just as amazing.
BROWN BUTTER CARAMEL
BLUEBERRY COBBLER BEIGNET
The Campfire Coffee is a freshly roasted fair trade organic coffee that she then blends with her own smoked chicory. Who knew so much detail can be put into coffee! Crystal and I absolutely loved it. Not too sweet, which was great since the beignets are on the sweeter side. It balances out the taste buds perfectly.
Bearcat & Big 6 Trading Post - The Shop
You'll want to buy everything from Robyn's vintage shop
Bearcat & Big 6 Trading Post is a little shop that is filled with amazing vintage finds and other fun goodies from locals. I don't know if you noticed Robyn's style, but you would think that she is a celebrity stylist. Her style is so effortlessly unique and she is always wearing something that is a one-of-a-kind. I don't' even know
