R&R upholds its quality roasting and craft country cooking. We eschew specials for menu stalwarts this visit, nabbing a green chile-topped BBQ pork burrito ($11.50) and cheddar biscuits and gravy with bacon ($10.25). The sun-dried-tomato-tortilla-wrapped burrito’s sweet like a deconstructed pulled pork barbecue sandwich, porkier still from shredded meat in the soupy, medium-hot house green chile. Gravy and scrambled eggs are poppin’ peppery over fluffy, flaky, at-no-time soggy R&R sourdough biscuits with a bacon-strip back. For non-snooty fun, we try a pumpkin-eggnog latte ($5.95/16-ounce), surprisingly balanced and non-cloying, with baking spices leading aromas and the nog tempered by the espresso’s potency. Next up: a Myanmar coffee pourover ($3.33/12-ounce), which offers a study in mild smoothness, not a lot of high notes. It impresses more as part of a holiday blend, made fruitier by a Nicaraguan bean.
